...propping up notorious Star Chamber tribunals...
-- TORONTO -- Ontario residents filing human-rights complaints will have faster service and access to free legal support as a result of changes to the province's Human Rights Code taking effect Monday.Pretty exciting news indeed, for the Sockpuppet 3 and their ilk. The Liberals have really decided to pump up the jam.
“We're bringing human-rights protection into the 21st century,” Attorney-General Chris Bentley said. “We're making sure that the rights outlined in the code actually have the strong public protection they require.”
The changes to the code streamline the process for individuals who feel they have been discriminated against, Mr. Bentley said. “They're going to have the type of legal support that they've never had before.”
I mean, for example, how much mental anguish can be healed for a mere 10 gees?
The legislation also removes a $10,000 cap on awards for “mental anguish” caused by discrimination. The law also outlines that individuals can now be compensated for injury to dignity, feelings and self-respect.*
