Free Speech EzraPalooza in Toronto With A Side Order of Mark Steyn! Gah!!!

So, a downtown courtroom in Toronto is now the scene of an epic convergence of Free Speech rock stars.

It's the trial of Ezra Levant, who faces off against The Sock, because HURT FEELINGS.

Court address if anyone in the GTA wants to attend (note, it's apparently standing room only):

The (current) trial of Ezra Levant starts today, Monday, March 3rd at 10 a.m. in Room 708 of the Court House on 393 University Avenue in Toronto and is expected to run all week. 

And in the stands, you can expect to see none other than international human rights activist, Top 41 Christmas Crooner, best-selling author and sartorial sensei Mark Steyn, PBUH.

(Adding in an ACK!!!! here for good measure!!!)

Steyn closed out the Manning conference and in his speech, observed the following: 

Culture trumps politics,” Mr. Steyn argued."

“Once every few years you can persuade the electorate to go out and vote for a conservative party. But if you want them to vote for conservative government you have to do the hard work of shifting the culture.”

“Because if the culture’s liberal, if the schools are liberal, if the churches are liberal, if the hip, fashionable business elite is liberal, if the guys who make the movies and the pop songs are liberal, then electing a conservative ministry isn’t going to make a lot of difference.”

And it's not about the Senate, it's about this:

"Like Mark Steyn said, Mr. Manning and his fans don’t want a government called Conservative; they want conservative governance..."

For a taste of Steyn on Free Speech, watch this interview with Brian Lilley on Sun TV.
