Publication Ban on Page 1 (Nalin Whatyamacallit)
(topical, chuckle, true)

The following piece appeared on Page 1 of the Dec 5, '92 Globe & Mail -
Canada's only national news paper.  It seems court censorship has come full

	"Somewhere in Canada yesterday, a group requested a court ban on the
	publication/broadcast of a certain work for certain reasons.

	"The court granted the ban on publication/broadcast and, in addition,
	imposed a ban on reporting the fact of the ban.

	"This has required The Globe and Mail to withhold Broadcast Week
	magazine, which is normally included in the Saturday papers distributed
	in Ontario.

	"The Globe and Mail, with certain other parties, has mounted a legal
	challenge against the ban on reporting the ban, on grounds that it
	interferes with freedom of the press and other media of communication,
	which is guaranteed in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms."

(From the "Rest" of RHF)
