Yes, it’s true:
The Government of Canada and the Human Rights Commissions always celebrate when they shut down a website that features “hate speech.”
They celebrate by issuing a report on their triumph — a report that contains all the “hate speech” in question — and publishing the “hate speech”-filled report in full on a Government of Canada website!
Are you happy about how your precious extorted tax dollars are being used — especially during a recession?
So what happened, in brief? Well, if I understand the meaning of the phrase “Cease and Desist” below, the man who used to own the website could be issued a lifetime speech ban.
This whole process should trouble any principled person, don’t you think?
For example, check out this bit — agents of the Canadian government are handing down fines for…
Thought crime, future crime and make-believe associations with mysterious strangers:
 The purpose of a Cease and Desist Order under s. 54 (1) (a) of the Act is to both remediate conduct found to be contrary to s. 13 (1) of the Act and to send a message to others that such conduct is not acceptable.
In the present case, the Northern Alliance Website is no longer in existence as it was apparently sold to an unrelated party several years ago.
Contrary to Mr. Warman’s Statement of Particulars, there is no evidence that the impugned conduct by the Respondents has continued to the present time.
Instead it appears to have been discontinued well before the complaints [filed by Mr. Warman] were instituted.
To a certain extent, there would not appear to be anything to remediate.
However, one has no way of knowing whether the cessation of activity by the Respondents was related to a genuine understanding by the Respondents that their prior conduct was discriminatory and a firm resolve that it would not be repeated at any time in the future.
To be on the safe side, therefore, I will make an Order along the lines requested by Mr. Warman under s. 54 (1) (a) of the Act.
If the Respondents do not engage in the impugned conduct again in the future, they will have nothing to fear from such an Order.
PS: The Guy Who Is Suing Us is a key player in this new ruling, which includes the following findings:
 I do not see any acceptable reason for Mr. Warman to have participated on the Stormfront or Vanguard sites, since there appears to be ample easily obtained messages on these sites available without his involvement. Moreover, it is possible that his activity in this regard, could have precipitated further hate messages in response. His explanation for including other hate messages in his postings by mistake seems very weak to me.
 Mr. Warman has, with the assistance of the Commission, instituted most of the s. 13 (1) complaints under the Act that have come before the Tribunal. He has been very successful in these cases and has garnered accolades for his work in this regard. The evidence in this case of his participation on Internet sites similar to the Northern Alliance site is both disappointing and disturbing. It diminishes his credibility.
Anyway, I’m just reminding you all of that evil thing I wrote just now because, in all the excitement around your Government publishing illegal “hate speech” on its own website for all to see at your expense — I don’t want Mr. Warman’s great admirers, Warren Kinsella and Bernie Farber, to lose sight of their real priorities!
UPDATE from Mark Steyn:
This decision – especially  and  – is good news for Ezra, Kate, Kathy and the Free Dominion bloggers being legally harrassed by Mr Warmfront, and possibly for Marc Lemire in his constitutional challenge, too.
(…) If nothing else, the CHRT and CHRC understand that it is no longer in their interest to be associated with this weird, self-aggrandizing Stormfront poster.
One hopes that Bernie Farber will come to see things the same way.
