Sorry for the hiatus…
First: Endorsements are pouring in for Bill C-304 that will repeal Section 13.
The Justice Minister and by extension the entire Conservative government
Ezra Levant (who did you expect? Bernie Faber?)
Over 20 Conservative members of parliament – apparently “unheard of” for a PMB
Conservative MP Blake Richards with a nice blurb
Second: Yes, the human right to taxi service strikes again.
D.A.R.T.S. is a not-for-profit organization that provides transit services only to individuals who require the use of a wheelchair, walker or scooter, require kidney dialysis or have Alzheimer’s disease. Hamiltonians with disabilities that don’t fit the service’s limited eligibility criteria may qualify for the Taxi Scrip program instead. But the alternative program, noted McCarthy Large, is not an affordable option given the distance she must travel on an almost daily basis.
Third: A Vancouver cop faces both criminal and human rights charges over his alleged shove to a disabled woman. In a show of magnanimity unlike most human rights tribunals, chair Berndt Walter has agreed that the Tribunal hearing, despite it “taking precedence over other enactments”, cannot proceed alongside a criminal trial for fear of violating the rights of the accused. Since when did a human rights tribunal consider the rights of the accused?
Fourth: When does the encouragement of racial diversity cross the line into anti-white racism? Immediately, in my opinion; any suggestion that “colored people” cannot accomplish the same things as white people is racism in my books – and so is the reverse.
Fifth: Here’s a perfect example of what a human rights complaint does to the victim (respondent). First, it cost the city of Cornwall over $74,000 to prepare for the hearing. Then, six days before the hearing was to begin, the Tribunal informed the complainant that they couldn’t use their own lawyer due to a conflict of interest. That would mean additional costs of at least $100,000. Instead of paying to see justice done, the city pled guilty.
I’d call that a bludgeoning.
