Former Toronto mayor Barbara Hall has been reappointed head of the Ontario Human Rights Commission to an abbreviated one-year term.Anyone wanna bet that a certain former Official Jew (not mentioning names) is in the running to replace her?
In a move apparently paving the way for a new chief commissioner to be named next year, the Liberal government did not award Hall a longer-term extension.
Attorney General John Gerretsen praised her for making a “good contribution” to the cause of human rights in Ontario.
“She’s been an effective chief commissioner,” Gerretsen said in an interview Monday.
The order-in-council approving the appointment was signed Friday.
Hall, who was the last mayor of the old city of Toronto from 1994 to 1997 prior to amalgamation, has helmed the commission since October 2005.
In 2008, she oversaw a long-awaited revamp of the cumbersome complaints process, making it easier for Ontarians to navigate the system and enabling them to take concerns directly to a tribunal.
Those changes led to the commission focusing on systemic discrimination issues rather than just individuals’ problems.
Sources say that by giving Hall an extra year at the commission, the government can ease the transition toward her successor...
