Why did it take three years to shut down the most hate-filled publication in Canada? - 2019-02-13
Ontario Court Judge Richard Blouin described the evidence against the publication, known for articles advocating rape and blaming immigrant "parasites" for everything from crime, pollution and gridlock to high taxes, as overwhelming, stating in his decision that YWN "repeatedly and consistently... intended to publish hate."
"Women were represented as immoral, inferior and not human," Blouin wrote. And "Mr. Sears celebrated sexual and physical violations towards them. Jews were consistently blamed, demonized and maligned."
So why did it take a ministerial order to halt delivery of the paper and three years of arduous legal manoeuvring to shut down what was quite possibly one of the most vile, hate-filled, misogynistic publications in the history of our country?
