New Ontario Human Rights Brochure

Wish It Were So

The Ontario HRT/HRC have a new brochure out to promote business. It says the following:
The Ontario Human Rights Code provides that every Ontarian has the right to equal treatment, free from discrimination and harassment in employment, accommodation, goods, services, facilities, contracts and membership in vocational associations.

The Code prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed (religion), sex (including pregnancy and gender identity), sexual orientation, age (18 or over, 16 and over in accommodation), marital status (including same sex partners), family status, receipt of public assistance (in accommodation) and record of offences (in employment).
There is a smiling picture of a white girl and an oriental girl, one of a smiling black girl, and one that makes no sense to me. It is a picture of a senior couple, both white, and both smiling. I get the first two, but that couple, particularly the husband are targets for free pass discrimination, since you can't please everybody with the laundry list above, because what is not said is that it is a hierarchy.

If you are a Christian, try to get to speak your mind about things that are not politically correct, but are to you biblically correct. Good luck with that one.
