Not Room 101, but Room 155 instead

Room 101, after all, is for their victims.

There was a hearing today at Queen's Park, 'probing' the mandate and activities of the egregious Ontario Human Rights Commission. One of the people "invited" to testify before the legislative committee was none other than the anti-HRC crusader Mark Steyn.

Steyn has good reason to be an anti-HRC crusader by the way. So should all of us, at least until such time as they purge themselves of all the HR activists, identity politics warts, and grievance-enabling PC dhimmies that find succour and comfortable sinecure in that wretched institution at our expense. And I won't apologize for using the word 'crusader', by the way. My balls are exactly where they're supposed to be.

Anyway, Denise O'Leary has transcribed Steyn's remarks and testimony. So here is a sampling. Go to the link {really, do it} for the Full Monty:

Far from reducing racism or sexism, the Ontario Human Rights regime explicitly institutionalizes racism and sexism from its inability to view any dispute [but] through the narrow prism of identity politics.

It's at odds not just with eight centuries of this province's legal inheritance, but with the United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Canada likes that one so much, it sticks it on the back of the $50 bill, even though Ontario's Human Rights regime is in sustained, systemic breach of Article 6, Article 7, Articles 8, 10, 11, 12, 18, 19, 21, and 27 of the UN Declaration. The good news is that Ontario is not in violation of as many articles as Sudan or North Korea.

I couldn't make it there today. Although, I would dearly have loved to be a fly on the wall. (No, being there would have been better.)

Fire. Them. All.
