Vancouverites ARE Starting to Pay Attention

CKNW 980 AM is the most listened to radio station in British Columbia. Their average number of listeners at any time during the day is approximately 166,000.

On the station today, their afternoon host, Jon McComb, had some very important words for those listeners. You can listen to what he had to say here. When Windows Media Player appears, move the slider to 36:15.

In your mind's eye, envision the hundreds of thousands of British Columbians who were listening and are perhaps now starting to wake up to the travesty that is this case. McComb gives a well deserved hat tip to Andrew Coyne's excellent blog.

Keep listening, because caller "Joe from Chilliwack" asks why this Kangaroo Court case isn't on the front cover of every Canadian newspaper this week. Perhaps if the author of America Alone were named "OJ Steyn" then it would?!

Precisely. Where is the comment in the press? Forget Maxime Bernier, Canadians need to be taking a long hard look at this. There should be communal outrage. Are our newspapers being run by wimps, apologists and fellow travellers?

Thanks for the article, and particularly the link to McComb.

I'm trying to get some interest going in the UK, as there are lessons to be learned, but I'm not getting the kind of response I had hoped for, yet:
