international conspiracy known as the
human rights industry was on parade in
Vancouver this week, and all the usual
suspects appeared: Stephen Lewis, our
former socialist ambassador to the UN,
Beverly Watts, president of the
International Association of Official
Human Rights Agencies (just in case you
thought it was unofficial), plus
hundreds of other world savers.
They are all out to create more
business for their business, as
exemplified by the pratings of Mary-Woo
Sims, B.C.’s lesbian Human Rights
Commissioner. She has been carrying on
about children’s rights being ignored
in B.C, which drivel warranted big
coverage in the media.
Suffer the little children to come
unto me? God help the kids. And their
parents. For what this gang is up to is
nothing less than total domination of
people’s lives. The Fabians and Karl
Marx must be applauding them.
The rot is nation-wide. In Ontario,
the Human Rights Commission has been
persecuting a printer by the name of
Scott Brockie, who refused to print a
pamphlet for a homosexual group. He said
it was against his Christian principles
to do so. The commission, headed by the
homosexual Keith Norton, fined him

The policy of these commissions is
to harass dissidents. Fortunately, Mr.
Brockie will be fighting his case in
the courts. The courts being what they
are these days, however, I wish him
It’s a slow process but the
message is getting through to some
media outlets. The National Post has
described current human rights tricks
as “an end run around democracy”.
The Globe and Mail has also been
critical, while Link Byfield,
publisher of The Report magazine, put
it this way.
“Human rights commissions do not
believe in liberty, only in protecting
the sensitivities of their favorite
groups. They see any critical
behaviour of homosexuals, natives,
abortionists or Jews as hate speech,
pure and simple.”
So do discredited governments like
the one in B.C. But why premier Mike
Harris of Ontario’s so-called common
sense revolution should put up with
nonsense of the Norton kind is hard to
In large part, it’s a matter of
politicians having passed rights
legislation without having consulted the
public about it. They have regarded
hard-line leftist drum bangers as their
racket prospers. The government
appointed Canadian Human Rights Review
Panel wants to end “discrimination”
against the poor, which would allow
these commissars of “rights” to poke
their noses into the body politic even
more ruthlessly. As the Fraser Institute
has stated, the inclusion of “social
conditions” in Human Rights Acts would
lead to an ever-expanding list of
controls on business and demands on
government. More end runs.
Rights awards range from the vicious
to the ridiculous. A 350lb guy who was
told he was too fat for a job in B.C.
was awarded $11,250 by a rights tribunal
— $3,500 for “hurt dignity” and
$7,750 for lost wages. Come to B.C.,
investors, we’re waiting for you.
It is all reminiscent of the
“Liberty, Equality, Fraternity” of
the French Revolution, which ended in
widespread use of the guillotine; and of
the “Bread, Land, and Freedom” of
the Soviets, which ended in the Gulag
and firing squads.
I know. That’s not in the cards
here. But they show the same spirit.
When “human rights” reared its head
in the 1970s its professed target was
discrimination in housing, etc. But now
politically incorrect opinions are an
offence, truth is no defence, and we
have former Supreme Court Justice Gerard
LaForest of the Review Panel telling us
that discrimination is “systemic”.
In other words, our sins are part of our
culture and we need a different culture,
prescribed by LaForest & Co.
The rights maniacs were the ones
behind the making of “hate crimes”
deserving of special punishment. For
them, too, massive non-white immigration
is a given. It is from ethnic
immigration groups, in fact, that they
derive most of their business.
Beverly Watts says we should be
concerned about the human rights of
young workers who are ‘‘caught up in
a demanding global economy”. Perhaps.
But does that include young white males
who are discriminated against by rights
commissions who openly favor ethnics?
They have about as much time for whites
as Stalin had for kulaks.
- Mary-Woo Sims
The egregious Mary-Woo Sims told
the misnamed “rights” conference
that most Canadians believe there are
no human rights problems in this
She’s wrong. There is a rights
problem. And she and her lot are it.
