Apart from the Western Standard and UPEI Cadre, the student newspaper of the University of Prince Edward Island, very few Canadian papers have published pictures of the now notorious cartoons which are "causing" intolerant and violent individuals to torch buildings and kill innocent people.
From the Charlottetown Guardian:
Koli Hoogeveen has never see the incendiary cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.Major retailers have pulled the Western Standard from their racks and the President of the University of Prince Edward Island has ordered the confiscation of all circulating copies of The UPEI Cadre, much to the delight of this woman who prior to the publication of the images by this paper was "forced to suffer in silence".
Hoogeveen is filled with praise for UPEI president Wade MacLauchlan's handling of the volatile affair.Thanks to a reader of The London Fog for drawing my attention to the story and providing a scan of the article, as it does not appear to be available online. Read the sordid story here.
