Time to muzzle free-speech deniers

By Rebecca Walberg, Policy Analyst, Frontier Centre for Public Policy

This week, the British Columbia Human Rights Commission began its hearing of a complaint against Maclean’s magazine.  The particular issue – whether Maclean’s infringed upon the human rights of some Canadian Muslims by publishing an excerpt from a best-selling book – represents a collision of Canada’s traditional and cherished freedom of the press with the demands of a growing and vocal Canadian minority.

Why Europe Has No Spine!

The men of Europe conquered and colonized most of the world,  and while they are derided by some for the abuses colonization often created, many a “native” people would still be dancing naked round campfires and eating each other had it not been for European influence. (Although it must be pointed out that despite the Europeans best efforts in some places like the deep Amazon and Papau, New Guinea New folks still dance naked round camp fires and still do eat each other)!

The Belated Message from the IAEA on Iran

Ephraim Asculai,  and Emily B. Landau , INSS Insight

On May 26, 2008 the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) circulated a technical and factual report on Iran, devoid almost entirely of political overtones. The IAEA report gives prominence to the major issue of the day – Iran’s unrelenting progress in its uranium enrichment program – but also highlights an additional serious issue of concern: Iran’s secret weapons development activities. The unprecedented level of concern included in the report reflects and furthers tendencies that first emerged last February, when new material was handed over to the IAEA regarding Iran’s involvement in weaponization studies. On the basis of briefings at the IAEA in this regard, suspicions have increased within the organization that Iran is proceeding with its nuclear development program, and the program could eventually yield nuclear weapons. True, the signs were there long ago; unfortunately, their recognition by the IAEA has come quite late in the day.
