BigCityLib Strikes Back: Ezra / 8 or: Corbella Corrects

Licia Corbella has very quietly walked back her earlier figure for Ezra’s court costs when he went up against the AHRC:His offices were never bombed, but he was forced to spend about $100,000 defending himself before the kangaroo court of the human rights commission after Calgary Imam Syed Soharwardy lodged a complaint against him.Worth pointing ...

BigCityLib Strikes Back: Ezra X 8

Licia Corbella has a pretty bad piece up, about how anyone who didn’t publish the Charlie Hebdo covers after the shootings in Paris ought to go get fitted for their Burka, and so forth.  She reiterates the same old nonsense about Ezra Levant’s being the bravest of men, etc., and then drops this: The only ...

I don’t know how I came to this webpage (Ed: ...

Leftist Jab: Calgary Herald’s Licia Corbella’s Courageous Position on the "Dismemberment Video" Teacher
