Alright, here we go.
First off, a bit of a grab-bag. Our Changing Landscape provides a little more commentary in the wake of the Infidel Blogger Awards, while Stand Your Ground talks a little bit about the Christian Horizons appeal in Ontario, and Stephen Boissoin’s saga in Alberta, and MooseandSquirrel.ca notes Binks’ latest at Free Canuckistan: Steynian 399.
Second, Dr. Dawg at Dawg’s Blawg gets rather upset over, well, I dunno. Some sort of comparison between a whole bunch of Speechers, with the exception of our friend Jay Currie, not talking about something and their, therefore, support for the horror of that something. He seems to be implying that to take on the Speecher mantle means to talk about every case of religious/speech freedom violation in existence, which, frankly, I just can’t see happening. It’s tiring enough getting worked up over one of ’em.
Third, via the Edmonton Journal: CN made woman choose between job and son:
By Darcy Henton
Kasha Whyte was devastated the day she was fired from her job as a CN Rail conductor.
“It was pretty brutal. That was my career and it was over just like that,” she said last week. “There wasn’t even an investigation. I didn’t get to talk to anybody. We just got form letters.”
Whyte, a 16-year CN employee, was one of four Jasper women fired by CN in 2005 for refusing to accept a temporary assignment to Vancouver. Whyte and Cindy Richards, both single moms who cited family reasons for their inability to transfer, have taken their case to the Canadian Human Rights Commission in a bid to get their jobs back.
A commission tribunal headed by Michel Doucet wound up hearings in Jasper a couple of weeks ago. It is expected to be several months before a decision is announced.
Whyte, 45, is hoping for a landmark ruling that protects Canadians from being fired for refusing transfers when they have legitimate family obligations that prevent them from moving.

Fourth, the poster behind Onward James lays out why he is a Harperite, despite the criticisms of Stephen Harper over the CHRC, Lynch, etc. He lays it out a little more at Free Dominion: Stephen Harper may be one of the best Prime Ministers…
Fifth, via the Cornwall Free News: Teiohontathe Fallan Davis Finally Gets Her Day – Canadian Human Rights Tribunal – Cornwall Ontario – November 30, 2009:
Boy Réjean Bélanger is going to have to earn his bucks in this case. Justice moves very slowly in this world. In the case of Teiohontathe Fallan Davis it’s taken over four years of her life. During this time she’s not only had to suffer the wounds of her alleged mishandling at the hands of CBSA officials, but also the frustration, fear, and alleged harrasment at the hands of CBSA and Justice agencies in Canada since.
As a matter of fact if not for The Canadian Human Rights Commission deciding that her allegations warrant investigation, and supporting their continuing investigation her case would’ve disappeared in the winds.
