Ezra Levant adds:
“It may shock those who do not follow human-rights law in Canada, but Maclean’s will probably lose.
“The most common cases seem to be employees quitting over squabbles with other staff — a female back-hoe operator claimed her rights as a woman were violated for being called ‘honey’ and other locker-room talk on a construction site;
“a male hair stylist claimed his rights were violated because the girls at salon school called him a ‘loser.’
“Another common complaint is sick or injured people being dismissed for not being able to do their jobs anymore, claiming that they have a ‘human right’ not to be fired. In 2004, Albert’s Family Restaurant in Red Deer was ordered to pay $4,900 to a kitchen manager who was fired because she had contagious Hepatitis-C — illegal discrimination based on disability, said the commission.”
