Mark Steyn wins one

Heres some good news, MacLean's magazine and Mark Steyn have had the complaint against them dismissed by the Canadian Human Rights Commission. However it ain't over yet as the B.C.'s Human Rights Tribunal has yet to make a decision:

The Canadian Human Rights Commission has dismissed a complaint against Maclean's magazine over a controversial article on the future of Islam, magazine officials said yesterday.

Meanwhile, a decision from the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal over the same issue isn't expected for several months.

The Canadian Islamic Congress launched the dual complaints over an article by Maclean's journalist Mark Steyn.

The article, The Future Belongs to Islam, came under fire by Muslim critics who claimed it spreads Islamophobia.

Earlier this month, closing arguments were made before B.C.'s Human Rights Tribunal over the article, which appeared in Maclean's in October, 2006.

I hope never have similar situation here.
