“That’s when Marc Lemire — one of the few Canadians who has had the energy and legal resources to fight back against the CHRC’s section 13 thought crimes steamroller — will be allowed to cross examine commission staff about their ‘undercover’ activities on the Internet.
“Judging by what Lemire has uncovered so far — such as an Edmonton Police ‘hate crimes’ officer posting anti-Semitic and anti-Aboriginal bigotry on the Internet — it’s sure to be a blockbuster…”
“But the CHRC isn’t the only organization that’s sure to be embarrassed on March 25th. If I understand the order, it will permit Lemire to enter as exhibits correspondence between the Canadian Jewish Congress and the CHRC, in which the CJC discussed methods by which Internet companies could block access to Internet websites — that is, to censor them — without even bothering to go through the process of a CHRC hearing.
“This, I’ve got to see. The CHRC has a 100% conviction rate under its section 13 thought crimes section; people dragged before the commission have to pay for their own lawyers, and often are ordered to pay fines to the commission and to the person who brought the complaint to the commission’s attention (like Richard Warman has done so frequently). Apparently that absurd, one-sided procedure is still too much hassle for the CJC. It will be fascinating to see the censorship plans cooked up between the CJC and the CHRC that involve short-circuiting the kangaroo court, and going straight to the censorship.”
