Contrition wasn't on Ezra Levant's mind.
The controversial conservative commentator went into an Alberta Human Rights and Citizenship Commission hearing in Calgary with guns blazing yesterday, using his website to republish the same cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad that got him into trouble in the first place.
And Mr. Levant's dispute with some members of Alberta's Muslim community became even more personal this week, as the head of a Calgary Muslim group said he now fears for the safety of his family due to "lies" Mr. Levant has been spreading about him.
"Contriteness implies that you've done something wrong for which you need to apologize or atone," Mr. Levant said moments before his 90-minute meeting with the Alberta Human Rights and Citizenship Commission. "I have not done anything wrong."
