Senator Finley Leads the Charge

Last week Anne Coulter, American conservative commentator was visiting our great land, and was prevented to speak at the University of Ottawa. The state of free speech in this country was highlighted by her visit.
Senator Doug Finley lead the charge today in ``the place of second sober thought.``to tackle the erosion of free speech and to make changes in the Canadian Human Rights Act. He calls for the section of Human Right`s Act that stifles free speech to be scrapped. Other Tory Senators also took up that torch.

OTTAWA — Senator Doug Finley led a call Tuesday to scrap a section of Canada's Human Rights Act that he and other Conservative senators say is being used to stifle free speech in Canada.

I truly hope something comes of this. It`s way overdue. The CHRC kangaroo courts have gotten way out of control and they need to be reigned in.
My preference would be just to shut them down and send Jennifer Lynch, HRC Commissioner,and others packing. It`s encouraging to see the Conservative Senators take up this cause. I don`t know what happened to the parliamentary committee looking into the CHRC and their attacks on free speech. They need to get back to it and get something done on that front.
Minister Nicholson, please pay attention to your senators and many of us out in the public who really want action on that file. The sooner the better.
