St. Catherines Standard: MP wants review of human rights commission

St. Catharines MP Rick Dykstra has asked a parliamentary committee for a review of the Canadian Human Rights Commission.

Dykstra’s motion last week to the Standing Committee on Justice and Human rights asks for an examination of the commission’s operations and mandate.

It also recommends a review of the commission’s “application and interpretation” of a controversial section of the Human Rights Act dealing with promoting hatred electronically.

“I think knowing exactly how the commission interprets this section, what it means for Canadians, would be very helpful for the public,” the Conservative MP said in explaining his motion.

“And I think there is some public concern about how the commission operates, in particular its investigative techniques.”

The rest. Well at at least it made a Paper;)
