A week ago Mark Steyn published this hilarious piece about my very own city of Vancouver. In it he described the incredible hypocrisy of Vancouver's city council to give hookah parlours an exemption to the sidewalk smoking ban. This decision is a perfect example of the multicult political correctness that is threatening to rip apart the fabric of our society.
A fellow in Afghanistan wrote Steyn this letter:

FREEDOM OF CULTURAL EXPRESSION
Good Afternoon Mr. Steyn, I was amused by your article detailing the exception that Vancouver has made for smokers of protected cultures. A friend of mine asked if Vancouver would soon allow the firing of automatic weapons into the air during parades and on holidays. It only seems fair to "accommodate" this cultural expression, but given the liberal revulsion of firearms it would be difficult to square this circle.
