Ezra Levant reports:
The government’s proposed inquiry comes on top of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada’s announcement last month that she is investigating the corrupt and abusive conduct of the Canadian Human Rights Commission. And earlier this month, Ottawa police referred a criminal complaint about the CHRC to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, who are now conducting a criminal investigation.
I don’t think the CHRC is going to be a pleasant place to work for the next year or so — longer if criminal charges are laid.
These official investigations are on top of the nearly-unanimous public outrage at the CHRC’s behaviour, which has drawn criticism from across the ideological spectrum. Groups ranging from PEN Canada, to the Canadian Association of Journalists, to the former executive director of EGALE, to the head of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association, to every newspaper in the country from right to left, have united in opposition to the CHRC.
This is not the end of our campaign, of course.
For now, let’s get this resolution through the Justice Committee. We can put together a briefing book for the MPs later, and even put together a raft of witnesses from whom the inquiry should hear. I think that should include everyone from Alan Borovoy to Marc Lemire. And I think Richard Warman [the guy who is suing me and other bloggers for questioning his methods] himself should be subpoenaed to answer questions about his own online bigotry in the name of “human rights”. I’m not sure his “I can’t remember” shtick will go over as easily in Parliament as it did before the kangaroo courts. (Question: what is the penalty if a subpoenaed witness is found in contempt of Parliament?)
So let’s get to work.
Of course, Ezra has an action plan, so check out his site for all the details. Please help us — we’re trying to juggle this campaign while fighting our law suit.
We CAN turn around this Trudeaupian Titanic at last, but only with help from our fellow Canadians.
UPDATE from his comments:
Where can I sign up? I might get in trouble from the chain of command for expressing opinions like these, but I’m willing to take that heat if need be.
