The Yukon Human Rights Commission is an independent commission created by the Yukon Legislative Assembly. Our mandate as laid out in Section 16 of the Yukon Human Rights Act | Yukon Human Rights Act French Version is to:
- promote the principle that every individual is free and equal in dignity and rights
- promote the principle that cultural diversity is a fundamental human value and a basic human right
Promote principles of human rights
As Mark Steyn never tires of reminding us, the only real human rights are held by the individual vis-a-vis the state. "Group rights" are just a euphemism for the untrammeled use of state power to subject the individual to the whims of those who hold that power.
