Ezra Levant has the scoop:
I’m pleased to report that Tim Hudak, considered a leading contender for the leadership of the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario, has announced that he would abolish that province’s human rights tribunal. Hudak becomes the second PCPO candidate to make that pledge, the first being Randy Hillier, which I wrote about here.
Hillier has it right: he’ll simply do away with them. There is no need for HRCs; our civil courts already handle wrongful dismissal and landlord and tenant issues, and for anything more rambunctious than that, there’s the Criminal Code. That’s it.
Here’s Hudak’s announcement. In short, he’d abolish the kangaroo court aspects of the system, replacing it with real judges, bound by real rules of procedure.
That’s half the problem — as I experienced first hand. Had Syed Soharwardy, the anti-Semitic imam who complained about me, been bound by real rules of court, he likely never would have proceeded, out of fear of having to pay my legal fees for such an obviously abusive claim.
But merely replacing the HRCs corrupt system with a fairer court system is not the whole solution…
