O’NEILL: Send rights fights to the court system
Terry O’Neill, Tri-City News, Nov 26 2010 – Human rights tribunals — should they stay or should they go? You don’t have to look into the murky realm of science fiction to find a fantasy parallel world existing alongside the real-life world. Indeed, you only have to look into the domain of Canadian human-rights tribunals to find a prime example of a bizarre alternate realty existing alongside the more rational, real legal system. And that’s why I oppose a new B.C.-led initiative to supposedly “strengthen” federal human-rights law.
