Federal government orders Canada Post to stop delivering Toronto newspaper, calling it ‘hate propaganda’

The federal government has ordered Canada Post to stop delivering Your Ward News, a crude Toronto newspaper that has denied the Holocaust, praised Adolf Hitler and derided Jews, Muslims, women and the LGBT community.

Public Services and Procurement Minister Judy Foote, who oversees Canada Post, made the decision less than two months after a human rights complaint accused the government and the postal service of “regularly and knowingly delivering misogynist, racist, anti-Jewish, anti-Muslim, and homophobic hate propaganda.”

Since last year, Canada Post has been delivering the free paper to a purported 305,000 homes and businesses in Toronto, despite objections from residents and postal workers. In the April human rights complaint, Ottawa lawyer Richard Warman said Your Ward News is “replete with bigotry,” using homophobic slurs like “f—–” and calling women “sluts,” “whores” and “c—s.” The Canadian Union of Postal Workers repeatedly said its members shouldn’t be obligated to deliver the paper.

The minister’s order effectively stops Canada Post from delivering mail from by Your Ward News editor-in-chief James Sears, or two of his associates.

“Canada Post will not deliver this disturbing publication as long as the interim order remains in effect,” Minister Foote said in a terse statement Tuesday. The newspaper was given 10 days to request a review of the decision before the interim order became final.  (more...)
