Liberals Want More Powers For "Human Rights" Commissions

As if there haven't been enough absurd claims of bogus discrimination and hurt feelings, some in the Liberal party propose to broaden the CHRC mandate which would include social condition and citizenship status as prohibited grounds of discrimination.
What will "Social Condition" entail? Does the Sub-Prime Mortgage mess ring a bell: For instance, financial institutions may assume that all people who have low paying jobs are an unacceptable risk for a loan.

I'd say goodbye property rights but we don't have any written in our charter.

Or, an employer may impose unnecessary job requirements that deny employment to capable people who have low literacy skills as a result of their social disadvantage.

Now with the proposed inclusion of "citizenship status" one can only assume the Liberals are cultivating brave new victim class voting blocks - Can you say Gitmo Inmates for Ignatieff?
When it comes to "citizenship status", even if it won't result in a "human rights" complaint from a refugee claimant willing to vote in a Federal election, a complaint from a permanent resident who wants to be qualified for a DND contract despite being a citizen of a hostile nation, is almost certain. And, as if all that wasn't bad enough, another policy proposal would empower the CHRC to enforce UN recommendations.
The Libs propose:
  • the CHRC be given the power to monitor the implementation of our commitments and obligations to enforce its recommendations;
This means subservience to the UN plain and simple, the goal is to do an end run around our elected officials and judiciary. I see new HRC legisaltion calling for an end to the Defamation of Islam as a main plank in the Liberals next election platform. Don't believe me? Liberals - MP Paul Szabo, MP Bonnie Crombie, and Omar Algabra attended the recent Palestine House event which hosted the anti-semitic Sheikh Akrama Sabri (Imam of Alaqsa Mosque) and Bishop Attala Hanna, attendee's were exhorted to vote Liberal as the tide had turned and the majority within the LPC now favoured the Palestinian cause over Israel.

And what else? Not a mention of notorious thought crime law Section 13 (1). And why would they? Liberals are anything but.
That's double-plus-ungood, comrades :(
