It’s odd: Mohamed Elmasry, an apologist for Islamo-fascism, using the same tools as an “anti-racist” leftist like Richard Warman. At first glance, they may seem like opposites, but they’re actually identical: Both are illiberal censors who have found a quirk in our legal system, and are using it to undermine our Western traditions of freedom.  [National Post - Dec 17, 2007.  Ezra Levant: Censorship in the name of Human Rights]

The B.C. Civil Liberties Association had called on the Attorney General to reform defamation law in B.C. to protect libraries because of situations such as the legal wranglings between Richard Warman and David Icke, author of Children of the Matrix. Mr. Warman had sued Mr. Icke alleging that the book is defamatory. Before going to trial, Mr. Warman had written library officials in Kamloops, Victoria and Vancouver notifying them of his lawsuit and requesting the libraries pull the book from their shelves. Upon consulting legal advice, the library boards all removed The Children of the Matrix from circulation.
