Canadian Human Rights Commission To Spies: You’re Next

Yes, the human rights commissions were started to make sure people could get a roof over their heads without discrimination. And yes, they now investigate and prosecute every public or private sector of the country, including national security.

Enjoy it, you pay for it.

[Calgary Herald] Current laws do not effectively protect against human rights violations by Canada’s security intelligence agencies, concludes a study undertaken for the Canadian Human Rights Commission.

The commission asked four Toronto human rights lawyers to examine the extent to which the RCMP, CSIS, the Communications Security Establishment (CSE) and the bodies that monitor them are legally obliged to consider human rights issues when discharging their duties.

It commissioned the study because of concern that laws enacted in the wake of the 9-11 terrorist attacks might unfairly target certain groups based on their race, religion or ethnic origin.

The rest.
