Steyn On Canada's Orwellian Tolerance

Mark Steyn writes a brilliant piece showing Canada's decrepid reputation on the global political scene, as well as the decripid morality that is forced to be tolerated.

When Steyn comments on the 'Orwellian' characteristic of Canadian 'tolerance', he is telling Albertans something they already know.

Why are Albertans not 'tolerated'?
1) Because even if they don't share the same faith and creed as Evangelicals, they still believe in the right of Evangelicals to speak.

2) Because Albertans won't be controlled by a special-interest oligarchy whether from Ottawa or Church Street, Toronto.

3) Albertans know enough about the sacrifices and self-discipline that it took to build the West, not to mention Western Civilization, that they can spot easily the destructiveness of sanctioned homosexuality on any culture.

The question for Albertans is whether they will submit themselves to this kind of state-enforced 'tolerance' or think for themselves. Let us hope that Albertans stay true to form.
