Ezra Levant needs help – read the details here. Ezra is a free speech absolutist, and so am I. Regulated speech ain’t free, and as long as we have nitpicking bureaucrats telling us what cartoons we’re allowed to print and what kinds of jokes comedians are allowed to make, we won’t have free speech. The difference is that he’s the one fighting the legal battle, not me. The least I can do is send him some money and ask my readers to do the same. We all benefit from what he’s doing, but it’s not just that. What he’s doing is right.
So. Please consider making a donation. It doesn’t have to be very much – if enough people give $10 or $20, it will make a big difference. If you can afford a bit more, please do (I put in $200 so far). Not only will you help Ezra fight the good fight, but you’ll annoy all the right people, too.
You can either hit the PayPal button on his website (www.ezralevant.com) or send a cheque marked to “May Jensen Shawa & Solomon in Trust”, care of Robert Hawkes, at:

Andrea adds: If I were to drop the fight against abortion (which I have no plans to do) it would be to fight against the limitations currently placed on freedom of thought in Canada. But then again, maybe I don’t have to drop one to fight the other. The two are linked. Everytime a pro-lifer shows a sign-a factual sign-of what an abortion is there are cries of “That’s offensive!” and said sign is, in many cases, forcibly taken down. There are no official bodies telling me I must refer to killing unborn children as “a woman’s right to choose”–so many do that as a function of self-censorship. In any case, we ought to fight censorship in whatever form it takes. I am glad that Ezra is fighting this so vociferously, and believe we ought to support him.by
