Geert Wilders in Toronto
An unpopular stance regarding islam has made him a big target around the muslim world. The International Free Press Society brought Geert Wilders to Canada to share with us his views on Free Speech in his home country, and what has happened to his countrymen as a result of the islamic invasion.
Jonathan Kay wrote an insightful article that gives no quarter to those who accuse Mr. Wilders of racism or xenophobia. Enjoy Geert Wilders full on, just as if you were there, a remarkable experience. Ezra Levant provided a terrific interview with Mr. Wilders, on his Sun TV show The Source.
I stopped by to visit the Ezra, (the man, the legend) at his shop - he's a terrific host, and I got a glimpse behind the scenes. I got to meet and watch a well organized and dedicated Sun staff bring you the truth .... Thanks Ezra!
Finally, a real highlight of the trip - lunch with the Toronto Press Club at the U of T Faculty Pub, with spirited and frank discussion of the event many of us had attended. Hosted by the lovely Moira, I can recommend both the Seafood Cassarole and the Teriyaki Steak. For an Alberta boy to recommend the steak at a pub in Toronto . . ... well, it's gotta be good. I'm looking forward to my next trip!
