I sometimes wonder, at which stop on the never-ending rails of progress did our politicians, and us the people, lose our moral clarity? At which point did we sell out to the likes of the OHRT (Ontario human rights tribunal ) ,who have exceeded their mandate of ensuring a fair and equal workplace and successfully absolved evidence , the framework of our justice system of all relevancy .This feel good agency recently “convicted” a police officer of crime that does not exist and prosecuted him with a stereotype that was not only irrelevant but demeaning. Sergeant Stephen Ruffino was fined 5000 dollars for his “unconscious” profiling of a black woman which stems from a white tendency of “an expectation of docility and compliance “. Sharon abbot the “victim” was confronted about the cause of her erratic driving refused to properly identify herself and replied “I didn’t do anything , I know my rights ” ,Of course she does what minority member doesn’t understand their full legal status as victims and their rights that were so grudgingly handed over by their white oppressors ? It truly marvellous that in today’s “multi-cultural” society old racial stereo-types have been reversed while the founding peoples and cultures of this great nation have submitted to the OHRT and its affiliates, for fear that we may ravage the world with our prejudices once more.
