This article is a great example of ‘competing rights’ and despite what the head of the ‘human rights commission’ says, there most certainly is a hierarchy of them. Anyone who has a flip through the case histories will rapidly find out what they are. And this case will prove difficult to them as lesbians have to be very close to Muslims in the ranking by the ”Methinks the woman doth protest too much” Barbara Hall.
To save you the time though, Muslims can do pretty much anything they want in the name of their religion and anyone who criticizes what they do or what they say, will likely find themselves in front of their august board facing 100K worth of legal bills if they choose to fight or paying off people who should really be in jail for genuine incitement and hate crimes with their partners, the HRC, who should really be in jail for extortion.

Barbers in Toronto who refused to cut a woman’s hair have become the target of a human rights complaint, in a case that pits religious freedom against gender equality.
When Faith McGregor went into the Terminal Barber Shop requesting a short haircut, she was told the shop only grooms men.
The reason, co-owner Omar Mahrouk said, was that as a Muslim he could not cut the hair of a woman who was not related to him.
