Bringing Canadian News to the Masses

I’m not one to loosely call someone an anti-Semite. It’s a pretty rough thing to be labeled so if you’re gonna say it, you better mean it. So when I hear this story, I have to make my own decisions.

Lesley Hughes, a journalist in Manitoba, is suing B’nai Brith Canada and the Canadian Jewish Congress because she claims they falsely accused her of being an anti-Semite. You see, Hughes was running in the last Canadian election as a member of the Liberal Party. After she was accused of being an anti-Semite, then Liberal Party leader Stephane Dion, asked her not to run in the election.

But why would they accuse her of such a horrible thing? Because back in 2002, she wrote a newspaper column saying Israel had been warned of 9/11. Her “proof” is that there were a number of Israeli businesses that left the the World Trade Center weeks before the attack.

Hughes admits that she wrote that. I gotta tell ya, Lesley, you’re kind of an anti-Semite.
