Multiple Jewish organizations lobby the supposedly independent Canadian Human Rights Tribunal

 

Is it any wonder there is a 100% conviction rate!

 

 

In Canada, paid lobbyists are required to register with the Office of the Commissioner of Lobbying of Canada. This is part of the Lobbyists Registration Act, which came into effect on January 31, 1996.

 

Paid lobbyists are required to report who they have lobbied, along with a variety of other information, such as government grants received, what was lobbied for, etc.   A search of the new Lobbyists Registration System has yielded some very surprising results.

 

The Canadian Human Rights Tribunal describes itself as “much like a court.”  The Tribunal’s website goes on to state: “the Tribunal's role in all situations is comparable to that of a judge, deciding the case fairly and impartially by weighing all the evidence introduced by all parties and deciding if discrimination under the Act has occurred.

 

So, if the Tribunal is “much like a court” and it’s role is that of a “judge” -- why are paid lobbyists trying to persuade and influence the Tribunal?  Could this explain the 100% conviction rate the Tribunal has for Section 13, the notorious internet censorship provision?

 

It would be totally inappropriate for a large company like the Royal Bank of Canada to pay lobbyists to influence judges on cases, where the Royal Bank’s interests are in issue, and it is equally totally unacceptable for Jewish organizations to hire and pay lobbyists to influence Tribunal members to rule in their favor.

Most Canadian Jews do NOT Support Censorship

Jewish/Zionist journalist and blogger Ezra Levant recently denounced these “official jewish” organizations for their claim that Section 13 is needed for Jewish “psychological security.

 

In his popular blog, Mr. Levant has called out the “official jews” for their support of censorship laws.  He wrote that:

 

I’m not the only Jew who didn't get the groupthink memo from our so-called "representatives". It seems that Jonathan Kay, George Jonas, David Frum, Kevin Libin, Michael Ross and Karen Selick of the National Post (not to mention the Asper family), Edward Greenspon of the Globe and M ail, Charles Adler of Corus radio, Ellen Seligman of PEN Canada and Alan Borovoy of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association aren't fulfilling the official stereotype either. Neither are Noam Chomsky or cartoonist Art Spiegelman or blogger Pamela Geller, but they're not Canadian. I'm not sure if Paul Schneidereit of the Halifax Chronicle Herald is Jewish, and Mark Steyn, Michael Coren and Christopher Hitchens may have some Jewish ancestry but they say they're not members of the tribe, so maybe their anti-section 13 heresy is permitted.

Each of the aforementioned individuals has come out against section 13. But that's the problem: they're individuals. The Official Jews, the Professional Jews, the Jews Who Are Jews for a Living, say that we're all just one big blob of "Jews" who think as we're told to think by them.

Canadian media on the Canadian "Human Rights" Censorship

 

 

Over the last few years, in a series of cases, human rights commissions have stretched the meaning of their codes to invariably rule against the right to free expression and in favour of those who claim their feelings have been hurt. Slowly, precedents have built up that are intimidating people into keeping silent. Now, media organizations routinely censor themselves for fear of being dragged in front of a tribunal, even going so far as to get people to sign forms where they promise not to offend anyone.

Western Standard | Censure the censors | Sept 17, 2007

 

Canada's power-grabbing human rights commissioners evidently have scant regard for the freedoms they suppress or for the original understanding of the codes they are supposed to uphold.

London Free Press | Freedom of the press attacked | December 8, 2007

 

For more than twenty years, in this column and elsewhere, I have been writing against the human rights commissions, which have quasi-legal powers that should be offensive to the citizens of any free country. They are kangaroo courts, in which the defendant's right to due process is withdrawn. They reach judgments on the basis of no fixed law. Moreover, “the process is the punishment” in these star chambers -- for simply by agreeing to hear a case, they tie up the defendant in bureaucracy and paperwork, and bleed him for the cost of lawyers, while the person who brings the complaint, however frivolous, stands to lose nothing.

Ottawa Citizen | Suing for silence | December 9, 2007

 

Nonetheless, even in this craven environment, Canada 's "human rights commissions" are uniquely inimical to the marketplace of ideas. In its 30 years of existence, no complaint brought to the federal HRC under Section XIII has been settled in favor of the defendant. A court where the rulings only go one way is the very definition of a show trial. These institutions should be a source of shame to Canadians.

Macleans Magazine | Here's what offends this writer | January 3, 2008

 

These days in Canada, if you're feeling down and blue, and you think somebody hates you, you bring your case to a Human Rights Tribunal. … you will have the satisfaction of making your enemy squirm, in a kangaroo court where he is stripped of the right to due process, in which there are no fixed rules of evidence, in which the ridiculously biased “judges” make up the law as they go along, and impose penalties restricted only by their grimly limited imaginations -- such as ruinous fines, and lifetime "cease and desist" orders, such that, if you ever open your mouth again on a given topic, you stand to go to prison.

Ottawa Citizen | The new totalitarians | Dec 16, 2007

 

Human rights commissions are obsolete bodies whose moment has passed. That they can be exploited by a narrow lobby seeking to impose its doctrine upon other

Canadians is a serious problem.

Calgary Herald | Shut down the human rights commissions | December 20, 2007

 

The liberticidal monster should have been strangled at birth -- but better late than never. By now Human Rights Commissions are populated with officials who speak disparagingly of "fundamentalist liberals" and describe free speech as an "American idea" with no weight in this country. They're dragging magazine and writer into their rank dragon's den for allegedly suggesting that Islamic culture is incompatible with Canada 's liberalized, Western civilization.

George Jonas | Turning out the lights on liberalism | December 20, 2007

 

Created in the late 1970s, Canada’s human rights commissions were to be the Holy Office of the Inquisition of the ultra-liberal state. This quickly gave rise to a dilemma. Human rights commissions always had a problem with a fundamental tenet of liberalism, namely liberty.

Books won't stay banned. They won't burn. Ideas won't go to jail. In the long run of history, the censor and the inquisitor have always lost. The only sure weapon against bad ideas is better ideas.

Censorship reflects a society's lack of confidence in itself.
