IN CANADA, B’NAI B’RITH IS NOW taking on Canada’s “Human Rights” Kangaroo Courts:
Bâ€™nai Brith Canada, an organization long concerned with the defence and improvement of Canadaâ€™s human rights system, is calling for â€œurgent reformâ€ of human rights commissions. The Jewish human rights group has successfully brought cases before human rights commissions and tribunals, which it says â€œhave historically played an important role in combating Nazism and neo-Nazi ideologiesâ€. Bâ€™nai Brith Canada has called on the Canadian Human Rights Commission to seize the opportunity provided by the current review it has undertaken to â€œmake real changes that will ensure its relevancy into the futureâ€.
â€œWe are calling for a much-needed overhaul of the protections offered by the human rights commission system,â€ said Frank Dimant, Executive Vice President of Bâ€™nai Brith Canada. â€œWe have to ensure that commissions do not become abusers of the very human rights they are charged with protecting.
A little late for that, but I’m glad they’re taking the right position.
