Via Kathy Shaidle, this story from the Toronto Sun.
The Ontario Human Rights Commission has time to investigate and comment on stories published in national magazines over which it has no jurisdiction. It has time to condemn writers like Mark Steyn because their criticisms of radical Islam makes them Islamophobic (whatever that means – being critical of something doesn’t mean you are irrationally afraid of it).
But investigate and comment on honour killings in a state where they do have jurisdiction and could make a difference?
Sorry, too busy. From the Sun article:
It was her response to Steyn’s criticism of OHRC’s silence on honour killings that shocked me.
“There are thousands of things that happen in the province of Ontario on a daily basis and we don’t comment on all of them,” she said.
But, I spluttered, women are being murdered.
“As I said, we are a small commission.
“There are many problematic things that happen in our community and we have to make choices because we can’t respond to everything,” Hall said.
So honour killings are merely “problematic”?
