ABSTRACT
The author argues that the Canadian Human Rights Commission (CHRC) and its judicial interpretations of human rights law have been silencing dissent. He argues that the mainstream media have not reported on these judgements. He concludes by saying it is wrong to claim that pluralism, multiculturalism, diversity, and tolerance should be so highly valued.
