MS: Well, the Human Rights Commission up there is, you know, almost the textbook definition of a kangaroo court, in the sense that of the complaints that have been brought under this section, since it was introduced almost thirty years ago now, no defendant has ever won.
MS: So I may buck the odds, but I wouldn’t bet on it.
HH: That’s incredible. Now Mark, how can the audience help you? I don’t know how to help you, other than boycott Canada.
MS: Well, you can boycott Canada.
HH: Well, I am. I’m not buying any Canadian goods this season because of this.
MS: People have been saying can we contribute to a legal defense fund. I don’t really like to take people’s money for things like that. The people to support here are MacLeans, the magazine in Canada, because the pressure point is always the publishers. Publishers need to be encouraged when they’re publishing this material, otherwise you can’t complain that the papers are full of Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan. If anything else, you get sued over. So anyone who wants to, who’s got a Canadian friend, and they’d like to buy them a subscription to MacLeans, they’re more than welcome to do that.
HH: That is a great idea, a Macleans subscription drive is part of my Christmas list now. You betcha.
MS: Yeah, boycott everything in Canada except my lonely, beleaguered publisher there.
