The staff at the Ontario Human Rights Commission held a joking contest to see if anyone could come up with a job that genuinely requires Canadian experience.
What about a Zamboni driver, someone asked. That was quickly laughed out of contention. There are ice rinks from Dubai to Durban.
What about a regulator administering an arcane branch of Canadian law? Chief Commissioner Barbara Hall had a five-word answer: “Knowledge of Canadian law required.”
As the game went on, the entries became far-fetched. What about an entomologist studying an indigenous beetle on a unique rock formation somewhere in the Canadian Shield? Everybody rolled their eyes.
Wrong. The winner is....(envelope, please): the Ontario Human Rights Commission, which has come up with yet another way to push us around--and justify its benighted existence.The contest ended without a winner...
