Peter Vere is my co-author on our forthcoming book about the Canadian Human Rights Commissions. You can see why he’s the perfect guy for the job:
One of Canada’s oldest institutions and one of Canada’s newest innovations are locking horns.
The Canadian Mounties have been asked to investigate a criminal complaint against the Canadian Human Rights Commission (CHRC), popular Canadian blogger Ezra Levant reports.
The complaint comes in response to accusations that investigators with the commission had hijacked the Internet account of an unsuspecting third party in order to post Internet messages to neo-Nazi Web sites.
Ironically, the investigation comes at a time when the Mounties are appealing a Tribunal decision against them.
The Tribunal recently ordered the Mounties to pay $500,000 to Ali Tahmourpour, a police cadet who accused the Mounties of discrimination after being expelled from their training program. The Tribunal also ordered the Mounties to give Mr. Tahmourpour another chance to join.
