Re: Fighting the anti-free speech Frenzy (editorial, November 23, 2010) November 23rd’s Editorial, “Fighting the anti-free speech frenzy,” is based on a fundamental misunderstanding of the legal concept of freedom of speech.

Quebec’s dirty human trafficking secret

McGill Tribune For most people, the term “human trafficking” conjures up images of women spirited in container ships by organized crime, or distant lands where children are sold to sex tourists.
