100 Huntley Street segment on human rights commissions
Here's an interesting segment that aired on the Christian TV show 100 Huntley Street. In addition to my own case, it also highlights Fr. Alphonse de Valk of Catholic Insight magazine, who was bullied for years by the Canadian Human Rights Commission, before they finally dumped him on the side of the road with a $20,000 legal bill. (The most grotesque detail of his case was that his investigator was Sandy Kozak, an unethical ex-cop drummed out of a police force for corruption. You can read my scoop on Kozak's unethical past here. Incredibly the CHRC put that corrupt ex-cop on the case of investigating the grandfatherly Fr. de Valk. Jennifer Lynch should be fired for that in itself.)
I thought the final few minutes, that showed a Christian, pro-life lawyer talking about his own use of a human rights commission, was depressing. By using the same system that is being systematically used by the state as a wrecking ball against Christians, that lawyer is legitimizing the system, and imbuing it with moral authority that it does not have nor deserve. Based on the facts in the TV clip, he clearly had other remedies -- such as suing in a real court, under contract law.
My final observation would be the folly of Barbara Hall, the chief commissar of Ontario's HRC. She says there is no hierarchy of rights, and thus she feels free to subordinate freedom of speech to other counterfeit "rights", like the right not to be offended.
But of course, that's not accurate. We do have a hierarchy of rights. It says so in our Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Some rights are so important, they are given the name "fundamental freedoms" and are given their own, special section in the Charter, to set them apart from the rest. That includes freedom of speech, for example.
The bizarre psychobabble by Hall and her federal counterpart, Jennifer Lynch, about a "matrix" of rights, is pure, made-up gobbledegook, an attempt to justify their illegal censorship.
