NP: "If you were prime minister, what law would you pass?" -- SCRAP THE CHRC!

(and some great answers!)

 

No more HRCs

It will take one heck of a PM to dispose of the Canadian Human Rights Act and convince the provinces to axe their inquisitorial HR tribunals. Leave genuine HR issues to the Charter and the courts and dispense with these theatres of the absurd.

The first thing I would do as prime minister would be to scrap the Canadian Human Rights Commission.
