Section 13 is Currently Inoperable

The Canadian Human Rights Tribunal has adjourned a Section 13 case currently before it, pending the outcome of the CHRC vs Lemire judicial review before the Federal Court. From the reasons for adjournment:

It is now up to the Federal Court to determine the operability of s. 13 of the CHRA. This will achieve the clarity that the Commission has indicated and that I agree is desirable in order to allow the Tribunal to be able to determine this and other cases brought under s. 13 of the CHRA.

A brief reprieve from state censorship, but it only further highlights the monumental importance of the outcome of Lemire.
