Gunter, Lorne  
I have come to revile human rights commissions. They are not the guardians of equity and the defenders of freedoms; they are side-takers and poke-noses, worming away at the very rights they were established to defend and exercising great power to change our laws on behalf of politically fashionable interest groups.

Jun. 22, 2001 - from "The new Inquisitors take sides", published in The Edmonton Journal
Human rights commissions are the new Inquisitions. They will accept testimony in secret. They frequently flout standard rules of evidence. They often just declare what is in the minds of defendents. And they are a menace to true freedom for everyone, including gays.
