Submission + - Canada to put author on trial for hate speech->

An anonymous reader writes: The Seattle Times reports in an editorial that the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal will put author Mark Steyn on trial for his book "America Alone", which has angered Muslims in Canada. According to the editorial, British Columbia bans all words and images "likely to expose a person ... to hatred or contempt" because of race, religion, age, disability, sex, marital status or sexual orientation." Steyn is unapologetic, and is advertising his book as a "Canadian Hate Crime".
