The Canadian Human Rights Commission has legislation that specifically protects minorities from racism and hate posted on the Internet. Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act (CHRA) empowers the Commission to deal with complaints regarding the communication of hate messages by telephone or on the Internet:
13. (1) It is a discriminatory practice for a person or a group of persons acting in concert to communicate telephonically or to cause to be so communicated, repeatedly, in whole or in part by means of the facilities of a telecommunication undertaking within the legislative authority of Parliament, any matter that is likely to expose a person or persons to hatred or contempt by reason of the fact that person or those persons are identifiable on the basis of a prohibited ground of discrimination.

DATE OF THE ALLEGED CONDUCT:
February 15, 2009 and ongoing on the websites http://www.fivefeetoffury.com and http://relapsedcatholic.blogspot.com
Kathy Shaidle maintains multiple websites in Canada, and is a virulent poster of material in violation of Section 13.
The following are examples of material in violation of Section 13 of the CHRA
On Islam: "...your religion is fucking retarded...ungrateful beligerent foreign savages...These are people who love watching beheading videos on the internet...A sick, sick religion. Basically Scientology with bombs. Pathetic whiny losers."
On Muslim and Pakistani immigrants: "Muslims...most of them can't even read...What we really need to do is stop immigration from Pakistan and other crazy Muslim countries filled with illiterate, violent tribal peasants..."
On Muslim children: they are “parasites.”
On a group of Muslim students who object to some statements by Mark Steyn: they are “motherfucking parasites.”
On Muslims: "Muslims always have to be on top, in reverse proportion to their ability to do anything with competence or creativity."
On Indians: they are “parasites” who “extorted tax dollars [for] booze, smokes and junk food. Not to mention free everything else, including university educations they don't bother getting.”
On blacks: “…there is nothing ‘compelling’ about a black man impregnating a white woman. In more than one Toronto neighbourhood, that's what they call Saturday night.”
On Jamaicans: “Just think of how much Jamaican immigrants contribute to our culture and economy: monotonous, illiterate music that all sounds the same, filthy hairstyles, those little tricoloured Rasta doohickies.”
On the blacks of New Orleans: they are “pathetic losers” who cannot have their IQs raised “a single point.”
On AIDS: “From the beginning, AIDS activism has been more about mainstreaming the gay "lifestyle" than saving lives.”
On Sikhs: "Backward foreigners [who] shit on hand that feeds them...Unable to invent their own iconic product due to too much time spent worshipping monkeys and cows, setting women on fire and obsessing over imperceptible differences in each other's skin colour..."
On blind people: "Giving blind people real jobs...is not working out."
On Chinese: "[They are] spitting and shooting snot on the sidewalk...throwing broken crates of rotten bock choy all over Spadina Avenue [and] eating dubious, illegal foodstuffs" [and cause SARS.]
Based on the foregoing examples, I believe that Kathy Shaidle is discriminating against persons or groups of persons on the basis of Race, colour, sexual orientation and national or ethnic origin by repeatedly communicating or causing to be communicated, messages through the internet that would likely expose Muslims, Pakistanis, Islam, Indians, Blacks, Jamaicans, Sikhs, Blind and Chinese to hatred and/or contempt, contrary to section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act.
