Canadian Judge says s.13(1) thought crime law is unconstitutional!!

I have been out body combating all day and just read this news.

In the meantime, Blazing Cat Fur has the full text of the decision and Kathy Shaidle has an excellent roundup of the whole story.

Excellent news indeed!! There are some people who have been working very hard to overturn these ridiculous "thought crime" laws. They include (in random order): Kathy Shaidle of Five Feet of Fury, Blazing Cat Fur, Ezra Levant and Mark Steyn. Many of them have also been sued and faced heavy legal fees as a result of their fight for free speech.

Since we can't buy them a drink to celebrate why don't you swing by and leave some money in their tip jars?

Update: National Post has a quick recap
