Ezra Levant has the scoop. I have my lawyer’s permission to link and quote away:
Warman is a former CHRC investigator himself; and even after he left the CHRC they continued to pay his expenses to file and prosecute complaint after complaint. All this, despite the fact he’s been under investigation for hate speech for three years.
At the same time as Warman was a complainant, he was a defendant.
At the same time as the CHRC was cutting him cheques to cover his expenses, they were probing his conduct.
At the same time as he held himself out to be an anti-hate crimes activist, his own hateful speech was being probed.
My favourite part, of course, is Warman’s last-ditch attempt to have complaint against him thrown out because… he’s suing me in civil court. As you can see throughout my website, I have documented countless examples of Warman’s own hate speech. Warman has slapped me (and several others) with a nuisance suit to shut me up.
But now I see that abusive nuisance suit was used for another improper purpose: to try to get the CHRC to lay off Warman.
In effect, he said, “don’t examine these hate speech charges against me… because I’m suing this other guy Levant for reporting them”. There’s not a lot of logic there, but I suppose he gets marks for creativity. But after nearly three years of delays, the CHRC has now decided: they’re going to proceed against Warman.
I can’t believe I’m writing these words: the Canadian Human Rights Commission is proceeding with an investigation against Richard Warman for hate speech. The maximum disruptor is now about to be disrupted himself.
