Black Lives Matter (BLM) has added another to its stack of recent losses. The self-described Marxist organization’s latest embarrassment comes from the Ontario Judicial Council (OJC), which on Wednesday dismissed a misconduct complaint against Judge Donald McLeod.

Activists and academics affiliated with BLM’s Toronto chapter have been targeting McLeod — a trailblazing Black Canadian judge from Toronto — for years. McLeod found his way into the far-left’s crosshairs because he dared advocate for Black communities without bowing to the regressive political agenda promoted by the likes of BLM.
