Those Who Sacrifice Liberty For Security Deserve Neither (Benjamin Franklin)

They keep on insisting

in demanding that Maclean should be censored, whatever CHRH has said:

A Canadian Islamic Congress leader has a letter in today’s Globe & Mail (h/t BCF) that continues to defend their attempts to censor Maclean’s magazine via the Human Rights Commissions/Tribunals across Canada.

the National Executive Director of the CIC (seems to have found) a sentence that, at best, is lukewarm in finding evidence of hate:

“An argument could be made that the material in the complaint bears some of the hallmarks of hate … [in] that it does portray persons of the Muslim faith in a negative light based upon broad generalizations, and therefore may expose persons of the Muslim faith to hatred or contempt.”

The actual decision was to dismiss the complaint, meaning that the CHRC considered the finding that the CIC’s Imam included in his letter, and found it wanting in any meaningful way.
