The great thing about the internet is that you can find out most anything and, if you are trying to expose a sham, it’s a great way of doing it rather effectively. In my efforts to highlight the sham that is the Canadian Human Rights Commission Kangaroo Kourts, I thought it might be a good idea to shed a little light on just exactly who these Kangaroos are.
Kangaroo #1 – Courtesy of Mark Steyn:
Just for the record, Mr Downey turns out to be Ms Downey] is an executive honcho with the Ontario Federation of Labour, who in an effort to be lead eunuch in the Islamist harem, are supporting Dr Mohamed Elmasry and the Canadian Islamic Congress. When news of the OFL’s backing was made public, a Maclean’s reader wrote as follows:
Dear Mr. Downey:
I am deeply disturbed and disappointed that you would use the front of the OFL to support the CIC in their complaint against “Macleans” magazine. The CIC complaint appears baseless and in my opinion, deserves a counter-suit of both discrimination against MacLeans and a friviolous suit. In my opinion, the CIC complaint is nothing more than a submission to a perceived bleeding heart weak organization to suppress the truth and any criticism (freedom of speech)about the real or perceived dangers and concerns of spreading Islam across the western world. Shame on you and the CIC!
Here is Ms Downey’s reply in full :

Shame on you! Please do not email me again with your harrassing messages!!
Hey, who’s harrassing whom? Before her present eminence, Ms Downey was a “human rights investigator”.
Did you catch that? The Human Rights investigator is now some executive working for the OFL. In fact, if you did a little survey of the employees of these commissions, what are the chances you would see many, if any, conservative minded people? Answer: NIL or next to NIL. Still, it’s always a good thing to point out the obvious in these political commissions: they are not interested in the rule of legitimate law but acting like a kind of Stalin like pseudo government when they can’t achieve real power.
Kangaroo #2 – Courtesy of Ezra Levant:
Laurie Andreachuk was the “judge” who found Rev. Stephen Boisson guilty of a speech crime against homosexuals. Here is what Ezra has to say about it….
What on Earth does that mean? That Andreachuk — not a judge, not even a human rights lawyer, but a divorce lawyer from Lethbridge who has a part-time patronage gig on the human rights tribunal — is considered by the commission’s own paid staff to be a rogue adjudicator who ignores the commission’s own laws and policies?
So, in other words, not only is Ms. Andreachuk not even a real judge, she’s not even a lawyer in the field of competence of constitutional law or something remotely similar. She’s a divorce lawyer, which I suppose, is perfectly suited for these hurt feeling tribunals. Since she deals with tears and tissues, it’s only fitting that she be on the panel to help soothe the offenses of politically incorrect opinion.
Well, folks, I can hardly believe I am saying this but Mark Steyn and Ezra Levant are the first prominent Canadians who are…POLITICAL PRISONERS OF THE CANADIAN STATE.
