Yeah, sure... that sounds good...

...maybe it was the "ethernet fairy"...

In dismissing a complaint by Ottawa resident Nellie Hechme on Thursday, the Privacy Commission said it could not explain why a Bell Canada representative identified her last year at the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal as the owner of an Internet account that was used to access stormfront.org under the pseudonym Jadewarr.

"I know the HRC charade has made a mockery of what constitutes evidence, due diligence and investigation, but this means that they accepted evidence that was not correct."

"Technological experts have indicated that, most likely, but without certainty, the association of the complainant's IP address to the CHRC was simply a mismatch on the part of a third party, which could have occurred in a variety of ways not involving the CHRC."

Oh, yeah? What a convenient excuse: it couldn't have been us, therefore it must have been someone else. Don't ask us for details; just trust us on this.

Try that argument in, say, a traffic accident investigation. Oh, right, I forgot: the HRCs don't believe in rules of evidence, truth - or even common sense.

I hope Ms. Hechme has the wherewithal to keep fighting.

If the left every gets beyond the gloating and the call for blood (i.e., libel suit), maybe they could explain how this is a good thing?

I know the HRC charade has made a mockery of what constitutes evidence, due diligence and investigation, but this means that they accepted evidence that was not correct.

Considering the recent case of the disgraced pathologist who sent innocents to prison, are we seeing a (admittedly much lesser) version of railroading the potentially innocent?
