Also, here's a video with Glenn Beck's commentary on Coulter's reception at the University of Ottawa. [h/t]

Mark Steyn's reaction. And lots more at Blazing Cat Fur.
Ann Coulter to U of WO Muslim student - "... take a camel". Heh :)
Also, today Marni Soupcoff claims the whole episode proves that Canadians just don't understand the meaning of free speech - which is a fairly well known fact confirmed by our "human-rights" laws, our "Human Rights" Commissions and Tribunals and today's poll in the Globe & Mail:
It's all very entertaining .... but at the same time, weirdly pathetic.
Anyway, Ann Coulter rocks! Too bad her tour doesn't include Victoria.
Update from BCF: University of Ottawa disgraces itself - cancels Coulter.
And here's the CBC poll: Ann Coulter: Should she limit her speech in Canada?
Note. The CBC poll results have significantly turned around since they were posted here.

Subject: Federal funding of Palestine House
According to NGO Monitor the Canadian government has spent or committed to spending approximately $4 million (2008 through 2010) in support of the activities of Palestine House Educational (PHE) of Mississauga, Ont.
According to information obtained from the RCMP through FOI (see also Part 2 and Part 3), PHE has been engaged in promoting anti-Israeli, anti-Semitic hatred.
Though Canadian taxpayer funding is, ostensibly, for immigrant "settlement and education" it is clear that PHE is engaged in activities that run counter to Canadian values and the public good. It is inappropriate for the Canadian government to fund such an organization in any way, for any purpose. If you insist on funding "settlement and training" for Palestinian immigrants, find another way to do it.
You are urged to cut off all funding for PHE and for any other organization engaged in similarly objectionable activities.
