IN THE TORONTO SUN, MORE CRITICISM OF CANADA’S kangaroo-court “human rights” commissions:

What are we to make of the Ontario Human Rights Commission’s drive-by shooting of Mark Steyn and Maclean’s?

The OHRC ruled it did not have jurisdiction to proceed with a complaint filed by the Canadian Islamic Congress and some law students over an excerpt from Steyn’s book that appeared in Maclean’s titled “The future belongs to Islam.”

That would have been fine if that’s all the OHRC did, but out of the other side of their mouth they condemned the article for being racist and Islamophobic. Unfortunately they made these findings without holding a trial or hearing legal arguments or evidence from Maclean’s.

Silly me, I thought courts and tribunals were supposed to hear both sides before they ruled on the merits of a claim.

Not these tribunals. They’re all about silencing inconvenient truths, apparently . . . .
