My co-defendant in that other HRC related case, Jonathan Kay, writes:
Given that Maclean’s editor Ken Whyte responded to that previous overture by stating that he would rather go bankrupt than publish an anti-Steyn manifesto, I would estimate the chances that the magazine accept this offer at about 0%. The issue has become a point of principle with Steyn and Whyte.
