Report on Human Rights Commissions
On February 15, 2006, a complaint was filed with the Alberta Human Rights Commission against Western Standard magazine. The complainant, the leader of a Muslim mosque, alleged that Western Standard’s decision to publish the Danish cartoons of Mohammed, exposed him and his family to hate, discrimination and violence.
Ezra Levant, the publisher of the magazine, was called to appear before an investigator. As Levant, a lawyer by trade, prepared for the investigation, he realized that something was terribly wrong.
