So, potentially, we have a new fundamental ‘human right’ in the making - the right to be absolutely safe, at the everyone else’s expense.
...are asking the Ontario Human Rights Commission to force their school to launch mandatory lunch-bag inspections to screen out foods to which they have severe allergies...
"Nothing is too much when we're talking about kids' safety," [Brenner] said.
"These kids are frankly frightened -- they're scared to go to school," [Brenner] said. "And nobody should be afraid to go to school." [I don’t suppose Brenner and the little munchkins’ parents had anything to do with scaring the crap out of them.]
One would think that if the little buggers are so deathly afraid of their allergies it would be easy for their parents to teach them not to eat other kids’ lunches, or any other strange or dubious foods. But no, they expect everyone else to guarantee their safety - which is not possible anyway.
The implications of a win for Brenner and the idiot parents are obviously far-reaching. The OHRC, if it has any sense, should refuse to hear this idiotic case.
In general, this represents one more reason to scrap the Human Rights Act and with it the HRCs. They are being used by zealots of all stripes as a Trojan horse (or battering ram) to harass and force loopy ideas on the rest of us.
