The provincial government plans to introduce human rights legislation that will dissolve the Saskatchewan Human Rights Tribunal in favour of having a court hear the complaints.It's about time. Obviously, it's not easy to oppose an establishment that has "human rights" in its name, yet, abolishing the freedom-snatching tribunal and letting the court of law handle human rights cases, will actually strengthen human rights in the province:
In human rights tribunal cases, truth is not a defence, defendents are treated as guilty before being proven innocent – in fact it’s essentially impossible to be found innocent due to the way the system is stacked, and by virtue of the operational definition of discrimination. Defendents are not guaranteed a speedy trial. They are also required to pay all their own expenses while the taxpayer covers the costs for the complainant, in one of the most offensive examples of inequity in the operation of justice. There are also no provisions to prosecute complainants who persecute defendents and waste taxpayers’ money with frivolous complaints.Hopefully, other provinces follow suit. Especially New Brunswick where the government is about to learn from its own experience that "human rights" committees and tribunals have nothing to do with human rights.
Canada’s human rights system would bring shame to a banana republic. It’s inexcusable and contemptible for a democratic country like Canada. Saskatchewan should, therefore, be commended for taking this move to abolish their tribunal, directing all human rights prosecutions to the legitimate court system.
