UN 'Human Rights Council' investigates Sudan Canada

Priorities my friends, priorities. With the miserable state of human rights all over the world, the UN 'Human Rights Council' has decided that the most important place to devote its resources is Saudi Arabia Canada.
Gay McDougall, the UN's Independent Expert on Minority Issues, says she discovered "significant and persistent problems" among minority communities, who feel their needs "have not been adequately responded to by government and to which solutions of long-term nature have not been found."

Ms. McDougall met with federal, provincial and territorial governments, and minority communities in British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec, to collect data for a report to be presented to the United Nations Human Rights Council in March.

Ms. McDougall's initial findings paint the picture of a country open to minorities and well-intentioned in its federal and provincial policies, but also one that often falls short in its efforts to ensure minorities have equal access to housing, education, justice and political participation.

Census data from 2006 indicates that visible minorities in Canada make up 16.2% of the population.
Gays are stoned in Iran, women are treated as property in Saudi Arabia, and blacks are murdered in the Sudan, but it's much more important to investigate human rights violations in countries like Greece, France, Hungary, Ethiopia, Kazakhstan, Guyana and the Dominican Republic. And Canada. Yes, really.

Well, at least it's time they're not spending on Israel.

What could go wrong?

Read the whole thing.

And don't worry Americans: The United States is next on the list.

The UNHRC is dominated by states that regularly abuse the human rights of their own citizens. You weren't expecting they would start investigating themselves, did you?

With Canada, it goes on to show no good deed goes unpunished and the UNHRC did not like Canada's defense of Israel. Call it crude political retaliation. It has nothing whatsoever to do with protecting human rights.

"She also highlighted the negative experiences some members of African-and Asian-Canadian communities reported having in Canadian public schools."

YA! I bet they can't come close to the negative experiences they reported having in Asia and Africa... but I'm sure that's not the point.

I kind of like this. The world is tired of hearing that the UNHRC is joke because all they do is beat up Israel. Now we can hear that the UNHRC is a joke because they actually have the GALL to even look at the most open, welcoming and pluralistic society on earth bar none.
