Human rights tribunal has a fine line to tread

But the existence of the law is a matter for legislatures, not for the tribunals that exist under the law. The B.C. Human Rights Tribunal can acquit itself by offering a reasonable interpretation and application of the law, and if people are still dissatisfied, then they should lobby their MLAs to change the legislation, rather than condemning the tribunal for doing what the law requires of it.
