Bus ad controversy is outrageous political correctness
by Lorne Gunter
It's not outrageous that Edmonton Transit removed ads from its buses reaching out to Muslim girls and women who might be under threat of honour killing by their families.
What's outrageous is the politically correct claptrap that's being used not only to justify removing the five ads, but to deny there is a problem with Muslim honour killings in general.
Frankly, it's surprising the ads were put up in buses in the first place. Singling out an identifiable group was bound to be controversial. Might as well have framed each of the $500 ads with flashing neon lights that exclaimed, "Look here! Look here!"
