One, little, two little, three Canadians

"Ed Morrissey -- Captain Ed to his friends -- published on the weekend what no Canadian is allowed to print or broadcast. . . .

"By midday, 131,000 people had visited the site. In just one hour before lunchtime, he had 26,000 hits and by the end of the day he estimated he was on track for about 300,000 hits, many from Canadians. He averages 22,000 visits a day."

Essentially Canadians have voted with their mice and rejected the idea that elites - political, legal or judicial - have the right to control the flow of information no matter how high minded the purpose.

I suspect Captain Ed has pretty much put paid to the antiquated custom of publication bans. Which will mean the Canadian justice system will just have to trust potential jurors....what a concept.
