Jonas holds up a mirror

George Jonas placed the Chi-Com's efforts to curb Google and censure the internet side by side with Canada's Jennifer Lynch and her efforts to do the same. Result: the Chi-Com's sound eerily similar to the Canadian Human Rights Commission chief.
"It is an operational norm [for foreign businesses]," offers the Chinese editorial, "to respect and comply with laws and regulations as well as public interests and the cultural tradition of the host country."

And Ms. Lynch:
"Ensure that informed discussion takes place," she instructs her troops, "and the manner in which it takes place is respectful of our human rights system."
