Has common sense actually returned to the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal?
At the foot of this commentary is the full text of an item posted June 6th, 2012 on the “Anti-Racist Canada” blog. Pointing out that “hate speech” will now be handled by the police and the courts, and noting that “acts of hate speech are serious crimes”, “Nosferatu200″ finishes with the cautionary note “Be careful what you wish for”.
Wrong, wrong, wrong, anonymous one!
Now, instead of being dragged before kangaroo courts which a) make up their own rules of conduct, b) do not accept the truth as a defense, and c) will convict simply on the basis of an allegation of “hurt feelings”, those accused of committing “acts of hate” will be a) granted due process, b) the presumption of innocence, and c) their accusers will not have their legal bills footed at public expense by a fawning “human rights industry”.
Not only is this a massive improvement, but more importantly, it represents a return to the logic and common sense which was completely lacking in the heyday of serial-plaintiff Richard Warman, who received the “Saul Hayes Human Rights Award” from the Canadian Jewish Congress in June 2007 for “distinguished service to the cause of human rights.”
