By his side was former Toronto mayor Barbara Hall, who is the full-time babysitter of Mr. Smitherman and Mr. Peloso’s two children, Michael, 4, and Kayla, 3.How does she manage to do all her "human rights" work while babysitting the Smitherman-Peloso moppets full-time? Or, to put it another way, if she has all that spare time on her hands, doesn't that go to show that we don't need an Ontario Human Rights Commission?
Update: Barbara Hall's one year extension as OHRC chief is set to expire in November. If Premier Kathleen Wynne has the audacity to extend Hall's term yet again, I suggest we bombard her with letters re Barb having a full-time babysitting career at the same time we taxpayers were on the hook for her full-time "human rights" job.
Update: Tanya M, who says she wrote the NatPo piece, sends this "clarification":
As the writer of this article I regret to inform you that this freaky nugget info was a big mistake on my part.Okay, so she's the part-time babysitter. Got it.
We and Barbara Hall have been notified of this error. My editors and I have adjusted it accordingly as of date.
Barbara Hall is not the full-time babysitter of Mr. Smitherman and Mr. Peloso's children, and she is still competently fulfilling her job as the OHRC chief. She is merely a friend to the family and has assisted watching over the children in the past.
