Western Standard, Front and Center

Well, it looks like one of the few Canadian media outlets to post the so-called "offensive" cartoons is the Western Standard.

If that link does not work, just come back later and try again. It has not been taken offline. It seems that the Information Super-Highway is in the middle of a monstrous traffic jam, and the server is overloaded. From the Shotgun blog:

"Don't Panic

"It seems that our website has beeen overloaded by traffic this morning and our web provider has suspended our account temporarily. This won't affect the blog.

"We'll be back up soon.

"Thanks for your patience.

Now, let's hope the server recovers nicely. And that their downtime was not simply an excuse to avoid having Ezra publish the cartoons for all to see or not see, as they wish (one of the really unfortunate by-products of everyone's tippy-toeing around those cartoons is that almost nobody has actually seen what they are protesting against!)
