Canadian Human Rights Commission Goes After Free Speech

“The name is a misnomer. These organizations have little to do with protecting “human rights” at all. They are quasi-judicial, politically-correct bodies that have the authority to pursue anyone if a complaint is made based on one of the “prohibited grounds of discrimination” listed in the enabling legislation — race, ethnic origin, age and sex, for example. The law goes on to state specific examples of illegal discrimination, such as communicating anything that “is likely to expose a person or persons to hatred or contempt.”

Standard rules of procedure and due process are not followed, and just about any complaint is admissible for consideration – as long as the feeling of being wronged is there.”
