Mark Steyn Pays Tribute to His Late Nemesis, Canada's Chief Censor/ "Human Rights" Commissar Jennifer Lynch

Steyn, a man who could certainly have borne her ill will even now, manifests a degree of graciousness that I never could, and that, under the circumstances, is very classy indeed:
As I say somewhere in After America, you don't need a president-for-life if you've got a bureaucracy-for-life. Jennifer Lynch, garlanded with every bauble the Canadian state could confer (the Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal, etc), was the sort of person a government turns to fill all these posts. I'm sure she was decent and well-meaning and pleasant and likeable, but she put her fine qualities in the service of a squalid and corrupt regime whose practices could not survive the light Ezra and others shined on them.
The take-away from the above: she wasn't a bad person, but she did a great deal of bad in the name of doing good.
