The hash tags #Black lives matter and #All lives matter have been the public issue and in the news over the last couple of years.No matter what your race,creed,religion, or background we are suppose to have protection from the wrong doers in today’s society.
All lives matter is not something that Renu Mandhane, head of the Human Rights Commission, can say about the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, located at 655 Bay Street, where they operate their Mickey Mouse HRTO court system in Toronto, Canada.
The Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario (HRTO) is run by Registrar Richard Hennessy and is suppose to have lawyers, acting as impartial mediators when dealing with Human Rights allegations brought up to the Tribunal to be heard.
The HRTO constantly breaches its own mandate when dealing with issues brought forth by Canadian citizens who attempt to right the wrong done to them concerning violating their Human Rights in Canada.
Quoted from Social Justice Tribunals Ontario website : The Code prohibits:
- Discrimination against a person because he or she has a relationship, association or dealing with someone who is identified by one of the grounds listed above.
- Reprisal (a legal term that means punishment or retaliation) or threats of reprisal, because a person has either claimed their rights, refused to discriminate against someone else or was a participant in a human rights proceeding.
- Sexual solicitation or advances by a person who is in a position to give or deny a benefit.
- Reprisal or threats of reprisal for rejecting a sexual solicitation or advance.
Quoted from the Social Justice Tribunals Ontario website :
What We Do
If you believe you have experienced discrimination or harassment, you can file an application with the HRTO. The HRTO resolves claims of discrimination and harassment brought under the Human Rights Code in a fair, just and timely way.
The HRTO first offers parties the opportunity to settle the dispute through mediation. If the parties do not agree to mediation, or mediation does not resolve the application, the HRTO holds a hearing.
Hearings and mediations are held in Toronto, Hamilton, Kingston, London, North Bay, Ottawa, Sarnia, Sault Ste. Marie, St. Catharines, Sudbury, Timmins, Thunder Bay and Windsor. See also: Practice Direction on Hearings in Regional Centres.
HRTO decisions are made by adjudicators called vice-chairs or members. HRTO adjudicators have experience, knowledge and training in human rights law and issues.
The HRTO’s Rules of Procedure, Practice Directions and Policies apply to its proceedings
- Fairness and independence
- Professionalism and public service
Harassment is a form of discrimination. The Code defines harassment as “a course of vexatious comment or conduct that is known, or ought reasonably to be known, to be unwelcome”. It includes offensive comments or actions directed at you that are related to one or more of the Code grounds.
