Human Rights commissions stiffle speech and try and enforce political correctness in the extreme. I would happy if they were all abolished or if there wer such stupid laws that they at least be dealt with by judges. The victim industry in this country gets a lot of money from the government and a lot of the left is funded in this way. It's time to stop this kairos is only one of hundreds of NON Governmental organizations that get funding. They should all be defunded. They are non governmental agencies. Why should taxpayer money go to these leftist or right wing organizations.
Silly Quebec right ruling attacks church
By ERIC DUHAIME, QMI AGENCY
The Quebec Human Rights Tribunal (QHRT) came out with a very controversial — make that silly — decision two weeks ago.
It ordered the city of Saguenay to stop reciting a Christian prayer before meetings of the municipal council, to withdraw any religious symbols — namely a religious statue and the crucifix — from its public spaces and ordered the city pay Alain Simoneau, the complainant, $30,000.
This judgement confirms what many of us have being fearing for many years: Our country is slowly moving from being a democratic society where decisions are made by elected officials towards one ruled by a totalitarian government of judges.
It takes for granted that, left to themselves, democratically elected city councillors or members of Parliament would allow the tyranny (in this case, religion) of the majority to oppress our minorities. It implies human-rights commissions and tribunals, on the other hand, are made up of altruistic commissioners and judges working for our common good.
This is pure anti-democratic, politically correct nonsense!
