As a Canadian newspaperman, you should value our guaranty of freedom of expression more highly that most, yet you report the jailing of James Sears, Editor of “Your Ward News” for his opinions with obvious equanimity, relegating the jailing, and the scandalously biased comments of the Judge, to a modest space on page 5, despite their momentous implications and high news value.
Former RCAF Veteran & Diplomat Ian Macdonald Blasts NATIONAL POST Coverage of YOUR WARD NEWS Persecution
Re: “Freedom of expression” hypocrisy (NP August 23, 2019)
Since there was no editorial protest, it is clear that the National Post is quite happy with the verdict, no matter how treasonous. Shame on you for not rising forcefully to the protection of our, and your, most precious human right, which so many genuine Canadians have given their live lives to preserve.
Incidentally, by what logic can “denying the Holocaust” be construed as “hate”? Surely, the presumably happy notion that Six Million Jews did not die, and any proof to this effect, would be welcome news, at least in the Jewish community.
