Section 13 (1) of CHRA to be discussed at Tory convention

National Newswatch has leaked copies of “the actual policy resolutions for next week’s Conservative convention.”

Among the topics for consideration on Nov. 14 is a resolution to modify the Canadian Human Rights Commission’s jurisdiction as follows:

“The Conservative Party supports legislation to remove authority from the Canadian Human
Rights Commission and Tribunal to regulate, receive, investigate or adjudicate complaints related to Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act.”

This writer hopes this will eventually make it onto the Conservative government’s agenda and go to a vote in the House so we can finally see an end to this odious Section 13 (1) clause of the Canadian Human Rights Act.


  1. About bloody time Harper and the conmen addressed this.Their lack of action on this important issue is the reason why I abstained from voting. Not laziness as some idiots think, but because the form did not have the choice "None Of The Above"

  2. I cintributed to the Conservative party in the past , but I refuse to do so UNTIL they deal with the CRHC abuses.

    BTW ... anyone from the Conservative party ... don't bother to call until PM Harper resolves the CRHC issue.

  3. So far this year I have returned two sustaining donor cards, two CPC membership cards, and a lot of letters in the return envelopes I got in solicitations from the CPC.

    Not a cent went to the CPC. Nor will it.

    Ezra Levant has about 500 of my dollars,with other amounts going to some of the free-speech 5.

    And that's how its gonna stay until the CPC shows that it understands that bureaucrats' regulation of speech is the surest path to destroying our already weakened society.

  4. Hear, hear!

    The Conservative Party has got to get out in front of this vitally important issue.

  5. Perhaps one or more bloggers could initiate a "STOP Contributing to the Conservative Party" campaign until PM Harper corrects the HRC abuses.

    Since the Tory grass-roots funding is very successful , any initiative which threatens the grass roots funding should become an instant lightning rod with the Conservative Party.

  6. Whoa!

    Let's not throw the baby out with the bath water.

    The Tory government is a force for good in our country and this should cut them some slack.

    This is a vitally important issue, but is not the only issue. I'll give them some time to get ahead on this.

    Those who can, though, should exert pressure on individual MPs and the PM to move on the proposed resolution next week (Nov. 14) at the Convention.
