Saskatchewan To Abolish "Human Rights" Tribunal

Great news reported by the Leader-Post:
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.

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.
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.

Lose an arm, apply for a job, be flat out told after proving you can do the job that they are going to try other people because of your arm.... then sit there and cry about the tribunals... i don't have the means to take that jerk to court on my own, however, he has the means to pay for his defense as he should. lesson learned is how i see it.

If you believe you were discriminated against - there's a court of law, which resolves disputes without trampling the defendant's rights and without elevating hurt feelings above the law. And there are still many legal aid options for those that are truly in need.

If you think this phony "human rights" industry might be beneficial for you on the short run - just wait until you encounter someone whose victimhood status, "historic" grievances and "social conditions" make his hurt feelings matter more than yours.
