Experts tell inquiry to enforce Canada’s Human Right obligations

A Manitoba professor says housing, education and health services are not policy issues – but human rights issues.

“Sometimes, particularly when we refer to human rights there’s this idea that they’re just moral precepts and what Canada could be doing or should be doing, when in fact they are law with binding obligations,” Brenda Gunn told the inquiry on day three of the hearings in Wendat.

Gunn recommends the inquiry identify Canada’s human rights obligations, and then hold the country to account.
