Complaint against Western Standard stalled for a year, so far

Almost one year ago, the Western Standard was the target of a complaint by Syed Soharwardy, President of the Islamic Supreme Council of Canada to the Alberta Human Rights Tribunal. It was about the Standard's decision to publish the "Danish" cartoons lampooning Muslims. Mr. Sayed wanted to have Levant arrested, but had to settle for the tribunal complaint.

Today, almost a year later, there has not even been a hearing into the case, according to publisher Ezra Levant who says "they offered us a plea bargain, which we rejected." The case is therefore still pending.
