OTTAWA, September 5, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – After being denied his request to be exempt from paying dues to a union whose “radical agenda supercedes the rights of workers” (the Public Service Alliance of Canada) Dave MacDonald two weeks ago filed a 10-page complaint with the Canadian Human Rights Commission (CHRC). MacDonald claims that he has been discriminated against and harassed based on his religious beliefs, in violation of the Canadian Human Rights Act and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
In his complaint, MacDonald explains how the government operated Treasury Board heard and denied his request not to pay union dues to PSAC, a decision he says violates his “freedom of conscience and religion, freedom of association, liberty, and equality rights” by discriminating against him on the basis of a “prohibited ground, namely, religion.”
There are many reasons why the CHRC will not hear this complaint, but these 2 stand out:
1) The staff of the CHRC are PSAC Union Members themselves.
2) It is the goal of the CHRC to destroy the pillars of our society, that by necessity includes religious faith
