LEAF launches website to monitor "equality rights" court cases

Will supply right-wing blog fodder for ages to come.


On May 26, 2010, the Centre for Equality Rights in Accommodation (CERA) and four individual applicants launched a test case to challenge the failure of the federal and Ontario governments to provide adequate housing, as a breach of the Charter rights of those who are homeless or inadequately housed.


Citing international human rights treaties, the applicants are challenging the federal and provincial governments’ inaction on homelessness. The challenge is framed as a breach of Charter s. 7 (life, liberty, personal security) and s. 15 (equality).

You know, they might end up implementing communism through judicial activism, if this doesn't stop.

I have a question: why are the people homeless in the first place? I'm very curious about that answer.

I am so sick of people using the Charter as their springboard for policies they can't the population to support.
