Randy Hillier proposes the abolition of Ontario's HRC
I'm a week late in mentioning it, but I'm delighted to see that Randy Hillier, a candidate for the leadership of the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario, has made the abolition of Ontario's human rights commission part of his campaign platform. Here's his statement on the subject -- I love his tagline: real justice, real judges. That gets to the heart of it pretty well. Ontario's HRC is run by a failed Toronto mayor, a Marxist crusader named Barbara Hall. She's no judge, and what she's meting out is not justice.
Hillier, along with fellow PC MPP Lisa Macleod, have been leading the charge to reform Ontario's HRCs. They were the ones who pressed for public hearings at which Tribunal appointees would be grilled -- which led to some scary revelations about the censorious instincts of that panel. And he also was part of the team (led by Macleod) who brought Mark Steyn to Queen's Park to testify about the kangaroo court nature of the OHRC.
I'm glad Hillier is making this issue part of his campaign. Frankly, I hope the other candidates "me too" him on this, and make it unanimous!
