Jonas: Canada’s kangaroo courts leaping into free speech fights

TORONTO — You can’t dismiss a tribunal by calling it a kangaroo court. Not all kangaroos are equal. Some have a lot of common sense.

A kangaroo in Bathurst Island, Australia, for instance, jumped on the racetrack in the middle of the straightaway just as the stock cars were rounding the corner. Maybe jumping on the track wasn’t a smart move, but as the racers came thundering down the backstretch, the kangaroo was smart enough to look over its shoulder and leap out of the way. It now has a starring role on the Internet.

What about the marsupials that sit on Canada’s kangaroo courts, a.k.a. Human Rights Commissions? Will they be as smart as their Australian mate? We shall soon find out.

The Rest.
