CCLA: NO to Caledonia civil rights abuses, YES to Muslim veils in Ontario courts

After reading about how the Canadian Civil Liberties Association (CCLA) recently refused – again to even consider the possibility of defending Caledonia citizens against the civil rights abuses suffered at the hands of the OPP and Ontario government, a friend informed me that the CCLA was an intervenor in the outrageous Ontario Court of Appeal decision that not only allows Muslim women to testify while their faces are covered, but states that veiled women can ask the court to remove all men from the court! 

The CCLA makes silly excuses about why it won’t even meet with us to talk about the systemic, years-long civil rights abuses during an illegal peacekeeping mission on Canadian soil used to subvert the Charter and Ontario’s Police Services Act, but it worked to deny an accused the right to face his accuser simply because the accuser was a Muslim woman and, in the process, normalized what Ezra Levant calls ‘gender apartheid,’ AKA: sharia law:

Shariah law has come to Canada.

Canadian Civil Liberties Association re Caledonia

I first began begging the Canadian Civil Liberties Association for help on behalf of Caledonia’s victims in early 2007 beginning with a phone call and email after we were arrested for trying to raise a Canadian flag in December 2006. Sadly, they simply refused to respond to my requests, even after I drove from London to Toronto to personally deliver a draft copy of The Human Costs of Illegal Occupations report which detailed the horrors of racial policing and the violence aided and abetted by OPP officers who refused to act against native rioters.
