This commission must go

By John Martin, The Times May 31, 2011

It’s time to once again set our sights on the country’s human rights commissions. A few years ago this was one of the most controversial issues in the country. The Canadian Human Rights Commission, and its provincial counterparts, were under intense scrutiny for their reckless attempts to impose censorship and exhibiting a horrifying disregard for due process.

Created many decades ago to address discrimination toward those seeking employment or housing, these commissions soon found themselves with little work on their hands as there just didn’t seem to be enough discrimination out there to keep thousands of politically correct bureaucrats and appointees busy.

So they started seeking out other witches. Magazine publishers, stand up comedians, website operators–soon none of us were free from the over-reaching clutches of the human rights industry.

But the tables turned and soon their activities and ludicrous rulings dominated the headlines. Parliament, the Privacy Commissioner and even the RCMP investigated them. Employees of these commissions have been accused of being members in several online hate groups and routinely posting racist messages to see what type of mischief they could rouse up. And then, of course, come to the rescue and bust the owner of the domain.

  1. This is an excellent article and we need more. Kathy Shaidle on with Ezra Levant on Sun with the Source was also excellent. More, more, more of the same, and oh ya, more letters to MP’s. Sad thing about this Human Rights stuff, and I agree with Kathy,, or at least what she said on the Source, originally they were started by those well meaning citizens who wanted equal treatment for all Canadians mainly in relation to jobs, and housing, and no discrimination based on religion or race. However, the whole thing has escallated and become infected with other than well meaning intentions, to the level of the ridiculous.
    “But the best move would be for Stephen Harper’s government to axe the Canadian Human Rights Commission altogether. It is a disgrace. At the least, the federal government should gut the legislation so the commission has limited authority. A good start would be to dramatically slash their budget so they would have trouble taking on the amount of frivolous cases they’re accustomed to. ” Yes, Yes, Yes
