TORONTO -- A free newspaper sent unasked to hundreds of thousands of people is filled with articles and imagery that promote hatred toward women and Jews, an Ontario court judge heard Wednesday.

At the opening of the trial of James Sears and LeRoy St. Germaine, the prosecution said Your Ward News makes statements about the two groups that are "vile and degrading in the extreme."

"The defendants have tended to promote hatred against Jewish people and women," prosecutor Robin Flumerfelt said.

Sears, 55, the editor-in-chief, and St. Germaine, 77, the publisher, pleaded not guilty to two counts each of willfully promoting hatred against identifiable groups.

With a circulation of about 300,000, Your Ward News has drawn a barrage of complaints from recipients in and around Toronto and as far as Ottawa. The federal government temporarily barred Canada Post from distributing the publication in 2016 and recently made the ban permanent.

The publication, Flumerfelt said, demonizes feminists as "dangerous people" and calls women "tri-orificed chattels." It brands most feminists as "satanists exhilarated by abortion," claims women are inferior, are "natural liars with no sense of justice," and that feminist behaviour encourages rape..  (more...)

Southern Ontario has had to reach a bit for suitable mayoral candidates:

Seems "free speech" has become a magic incantation for closet Nazis. Are lifeys willing to die on this hill?

Don't confuse CLC with KKK, or conservatives with incels, or Catholics with Cathevangelics:
