The Truth and Reconciliation Commission into Canada's residential schools has been chaired by Manitoba Justice Murray Sinclair, who recently said something depressing and disturbing.
He claimed "there are laws in place that say you actually can't deny the Holocaust."
He then promoted the idea of passing similar laws regarding "residential schools and the abuse that occurred."
First, it's not illegal to deny the Holocaust in Canada. You'd think a judge would know this.
But what's scarier is that he actually wants a law like that passed.
That would shut down debates about what happened in residential schools, and not every historian or even former student thinks they were all bad. Would they be charged with "hate speech" for saying so?
This is another example of unelected and unaccountable Canadian judges getting political.
