“To my surprise, members of the [Canadian Jewish Congress] delegation acknowledged that the folks who staff these commissions are sometimes lacking in competence, and thus — as I have argued — give the adjudication of human rights a bad odour in some instances. (I won’t name names here, because the CJC clearly sees these commissions as allies, and I don’t want to embarrass anyone.)
“…One of the visitors — who shall remain unnamed — went further, suggesting that some human-rights commissions had become dumping grounds for political hacks without the skills to make it in truly merit-based jobs. He had the air of a man whose dream was being stifled by bad execution.”
Ezra Levant comments:
It’s always slightly uncomfortable watching a lovers’ quarrel played out in public, but when it comes to this CHRC/CJC fight, I hope it gets noisier and ruder.
