The Globe & Mail does it again. A young G20 activist, who has just had several charges against him dropped, is suing the Toronto and Ontario provincial police as well as an undercover cop for, among other things, listening in on his sexual activities and circulating the information.

But that’s all unproven, as the article repeats to ensure that we all get the point. Here’s the real story—in the very last sentence of a 19-para article:

Mr. Ichim now faces three counts of disobeying a court order for maintaining a blog, and said he expected to be jailed in what he called a further attempt at intimidating activists. [emphasis added]

Good grief! Surely even the Speech Warriors™ will throw aside their double standards at this point. Courts telling citizens they can’t run blogs? Since when?
