Toronto: Two Standards

Reader comment on item: [Moderate] Voices of Islam

Curious that Ernst Zundel is prosecuted in Toronto while Manji gets police protection. Apparently some people's speech is more free than others.

Yeah, I suppose this is a trolling ...post, but I really don't see why should anyone be put in prison for questioning the facts and details of a historical event. That Manji is receiving support from the Canadian government shows that they (gov't) understand the concept of free speech. Why don't they extend free speech rights to all?
