The Human Rights Pot of Gold

Re Tribunal told guard wasn't mocked for refusing hard hat, Aug. 18

Is the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal out of control? The commissioner sits quietly while someone claims $40,000 for a perceived slight to his religious head gear. It is claimed that this slight has brought on stress, medical issues and reduced work hours.

Were it not for the prospect of a pot of gold at the end of the human rights rainbow, such fatuous claims would not be made.
