"Human Rights" Commissions in Canada

Ezra Levant recently appeared on Michael Coren's TV program, discussing the horrendous behaviour of the 14 so-called "Human Rights" Commissions across Canada. He cites several real-life examples that will leave you incredulous:

Update: Rex Murphy has a lengthy but superb review of Shakedown. Here's a snippet:

Now, some people do not like Levant's style. They say he is too aggressive, too noisy and assertive, that he courts controversy and publicity. They should read Shakedown, and they will quickly realize that anyone less "aggressive" or "noisy" would have long ago been suffocated by the remorseless, inequitable, taxpayer-funded, bureaucratic grinding of Canada's human rights tribunals and commissions.

On the matter of his alleged taste for controversy and publicity, again, after reading Shakedown, they will realize that without his ability to withstand controversy and generate publicity, an insidious and largely unaccountable process of diminishing the central concepts of our democracy — freedom of speech, press and thought — would largely have gone unnoticed, and what is far worse, unchallenged.

Wow, powerful video! I'll have to get that book! He's so well spoken, I hoped our government would get rid of these kangaroo courts, but it looks like Harper has been cowed.

Yes, given a majority I'm sure Harpo would deal with these Star Chambers. I don't think however that he'll get the opportunity anyway as upper and lower canerduh and their media have decided Count Iggy is just the leader the natural governing partie du canerduh need to lead them out of the penalty box and back to the empire's helm, where of course, they belong.
The laurel wreaths are being prepared even now.
