The Daily Lynch List – writ Ontario

Well, that time of day has come again, when I talk about all those people who are talking about Jennifer Lynch and her wonderful multi-colour commission. Only today seems to be a slow Jennifer Lynch news-day, so today’s post is going to be all about Barbara Hall, and the Ontario Human Rights Commission.

First of all, chief commissioner Barbara Hall seems to be keeping herself busy. Via CNW Newswire:

Media Advisory: New study reveals pervasive discrimination in Toronto’s rental housing market

    TORONTO, July 3 /CNW/ - Do landlords prefer to rent to couples over
single mothers? What if the single mother has a Caribbean accent? Would they
avoid renting to someone who has a mental health worker? Or someone receiving
social assistance? Does a person with an identifiable South Asian accent have
a harder time finding a place than someone with a so-called "Canadian" accent?
    On Tuesday, July 7, 2009 at 11:00am, The Centre for Equal Rights in
Accommodation (CERA) will release the results of a ground-breaking
discrimination audit of almost 1,000 rental apartments across Toronto.
    CERA will be joined by Chief Commissioner Barbara Hall of the Ontario
Human Rights Commission, a young mother who was denied housing, and housing
advocates.

    Who:      Centre for Equality Rights in Accommodation (CERA), Ontario
              Human Rights Commission, human rights claimant, housing
              advocates

    When:     Tuesday, July 7, 2009, 11:00am

    Where:    Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work, University of Toronto
              246 Bloor Street W, Toronto
              Room 548
              (Corner of Bloor Street and Bedford Road, near the St. George
              subway station)

PS: Nice to see that non-profits such as the “Centre for Equality Rights in Accommodation” have enough change for fancy press services like the CNW wire service! Ka-ching!  What is the ‘right’ to ‘equality in accommodation’ anyway? Let me run that through my human rights-speak translator…oh yes-that means, if you are a landlord-you are screwed no matter what you do, or who you rent to. PS: Nice to see that non-profits such as the “Centre for Equality Rights in Accommodation” have enough change for fancy press services like the CNW wire service!

Second, Thaddeus M. Bakllinski and Steve Jalsevac in LifeSiteNews aren’t so optimistic about Tim Hudek’s Ontario PC Party leadership win on anti-abortion/Pro-Family grounds. Apparently, his rather encouraging stance on the OHRC isn’t enough to win over the entirety of the Social Conservative crowd – can’t win ’em all, I guess.

Meanwhile, on a slightly different note, a complaint before the OHRC against Salman Hossain – gonna go anywhere? I doubt it, which is about the only reason that I think raising a complaint at all might be a good idea. After all – surely no self-respecting Speecher would actually want Salman Hossain prosecuted before a Human Rights Tribunal?

And…oh, wait, it looks like I lied. There is one bit of Jennifer-related content to link to today, and that link is to Scaramouche, who talks about Mark Steyn’s latest column in Macleans mag, taking Jennifer Lynch and her fellow speech-manglers to task.

But that’s it for today, I swear.
