Political correctness shouldn’t trump common sense

by Christina Blizzard

The older I get, the more particular I am about who I get naked with.

It’s not that I’m a prude.

As one ages, things tend to sag and bag and, well, the bits you used to flaunt you tend to want to keep to yourself.

Apparently, I’m not alone.

A recent letter to an ethics columnist in the Toronto Star from an older woman complained she had to share a gym changeroom recently with a man who claimed to be transgendered and was therefore entitled to use the women’s changeroom.

The “woman” had a penis. The penis had an erection and the person it was attached to asked her if she “came here often.” Read more…

COLUMN: Adler – Fake human rights

Kangaroo courts waste tax dollars, time

by Charles Adler

Canadians are truly fortunate for many reasons. But an unfortunate side effect of our privileged position is many Canadians have lost the understanding of true human rights.

Provincial human rights commissions are supposed to protect citizens from genuine acts of discrimination. But all too often they act as misguided enforcers for the easily offended — a forum for people who seek out anything remotely controversial and warp basic human disagreements into human rights violations.

Take restaurant chain Earls and its Albino Rhino beer, sold in 50 locations across Canada and the U.S. Albino rhinos actually do exist. So do albino lions, birds, dolphins and reptiles; they have in common the condition where there is no pigment in the skin, increasing sun sensitivity. Read more…

Did Barbara Hall change the law while no one was looking?

- May 30th, 2012

Barbara HallWe have a real problem with bureaucrats in this country thinking they rule the roost. Think of the back door gun registry which continues despite laws passed by Parliament. Think of the Foreign Affairs Department in Ottawa which thinks it runs Canada’s foreign policy regardless of who is actually running the elected government.

But I’m still stunned to see Barbara Hall, the Chief Commissar of the Ontario Human Rights Commission, change the law by decree.Hall was appearing before the Queen’s Park Social Committee which was conducting hearings on Bill 13, the Liberals “anti-bullying” act which manages to bully anyone that gets in its way. There are few things wrong with what she said but here is the key paragraph.

“Ontario’s Human Rights Code is, in a sense, Ontario’s highest law. All schools—including public, Catholic and private—have a legal duty to provide students with an educational environment free from harassment and other forms of discrimination because of their race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, sexual orientation, age, marital status, family status, disability and sex, including gender identity.” Barbara Hall, May 15, 2012

Wow!

First off Ms. Hall, the highest law in Ontario is still the Constitution of Canada and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms but nice try. Secondly, you will notice that Ms. Hall says that her vision applies to all schools, including private ones. That means that even if Catholic schools stop taking money over the imposition of gay-straight alliances they will still have to allow them in Barbara Hall’s world.

But the biggest wow in there has to be the last bit, “…including gender identity.”

Ummm, when did the legislature pass a law making gender identity a prohibited grounds of discrimination?

The answer is that they didn’t but Barbara Hall wants it in there so she’s putting it in. Now there is a bill to insert “gender identity” into the act but it has not passed yet.  This was even mentioned at the hearing by NDP MPP Cheri DiNovo.

Ms. Cheri DiNovo: Thank you, Barbara, for your presentation, and also thank you for your support for “gender identity” and “gender expression” as explicit words in the Ontario Human Rights Code and your letter to that effect. As you know, Toby’s Act passed second reading. We’re hoping to get it in place by Pride.

Barbara Hall does not make the laws in Ontario despite what she may think. She is a mere public servant, there to do the bidding of the legislature, not direct. This is another reason that Hall has to go and her Commission be scrapped.
