Two American Web sites – one conservative, the other Catholic – are at the heart of a Canadian prov incial government hearing against Maclean’s magazine, Canada’s largest national newsweekly.
The magazine was brought before the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal after publishing an excerpt from Mark Steyn’s best-seller “America Alone” under the title “The Future Belongs to Islam.” The first part of the hearing began last Monday and ran until Friday afternoon.
The American Web sites introduced by the complainants are FreeRepublic, a popular conservative discussion forum, and Catholic Answers, an evangelism and apologetics site popular among young Catholics. Both American sites are based in California.
