Ms. Connie WilkinsFreeDominion thread is here. LifeSite has a story too.
A good example of the pre-Magna Carta rules of Human Rights weasel-justice can be found here. At "Human Rights" tribunals, there are essentially no rules of evidence or proof that would be recognized outside of the works of Lewis Carroll. In such tribunals, hearsay and speculation are the equivalent of a fingerprinted bloody hammer in a real court. The principle of reasonable doubt equaling innocence is nowhere to be found. The letter FreeDominion received demanded a response without even informing them about the basis of the complaint. Looking at the CHRC mandate, it's not even obvious where it gets its authority over FreeDominion. Here, truly, social justice comes into its full meaning: making it up as you go along and taking what you want from the weak. As a result, Human Rights are used to extort from politically convenient targets, who have no recourse to the systems of logic, reason, and proportionality that protect us all in respectable courtrooms.
But in Elijah Elieff's day (see "Human Rights Fascism: A Case Study") there was no Internet to draw attention to the kangaroo court injustice against him. Today an international audience is watching and waiting for the Canadian Human Rights Commission to do something unwise, like harassing FreeDominion.
The owners haven't yet been told what wicked string of comment-characters so offended the anonymous complainant to the point of involving a human rights troika. Once the forbidden thoughts are revealed, the patriotic, Canadian response to this harassment will be for every blogger in Canada and elsewhere to replicate the offending post, verbatim, on their own blogs.
Differences of opinion, even ugly opinions, are for the people of Canada to work out, disagree with, agree with, hate or love, among themselves as a free people -- not for goons dressing up harassment in "Human Rights" garb to pick and choose among.
