After putting MP Randy Hillier on the spot by lambasting Tim Hudak’s backtracking on his commitment to eliminate Ontario’s human rights tribunal to put an end to frivolous and abusive prosecutions (Levant was once prosecuted, er persecuted,by the Alberta Human Rights Commission for hate speech himself after publishing the infamous Mohammed cartoons at the Western Standard) he then spent about 12 minutes interviewing McHale. Levant finished with a promise to have McHale back many more times, recognizing that their first interview had “just scratched the surface.”
Hat tip to Blazing Cat Fur and ‘sdamatt2’ for getting the story & video out so quickly.
Levant/Sun News willingness to hold Conservatives accountable is good news!
As much as I was pleased at seeing my longtime associate appear with Canada’s leading conservative advocate for free speech to talk about Caledonia, I was just as gratified to see that the SUN News network is not planning on being a cheerleader or apologist for wimpy, backsliding, spineless Conservative politicians any more than it is for the left-leaning iteration. Watch and enjoy:

- SUN News, May 06/11: Brian Lilley’s interview w/Randy Hillier re human rights commission [VIDEO, 12:10]
- Globe & Mail, May 05/11: Hudak backtracks on pledge to axe human-rights tribunal
Levant and SUN News are a breath of fresh air – especially for conservatives living in Ontario just months away from the next election, and especially for everyone who cares about the civil rights abuses in Caledonia. They just sent a powerful message to Hudak’s strategy planners today, and I was cheering at the TV the whole time it was being delivered. Way to go Ezra!

P.S. I called Bell customer service earlier today to tell them that when my contract ends on June 29th I’ll be switching my home phone to Rogers if Bell ExpressVu hasn’t put Sun News back on the air.
