Canadian Court upholds human rights tribunal’s powers

Even as the Supreme Court curtailed the powers of the federal human rights body last month, the Federal Court of Appeal has gone in a different direction in ruling that Canadian Human Rights Tribunal orders carry similar weight to court orders and can lead to contempt findings on their own.

Federal Court of Appeal ruling upheld in Terry Tremaine cyberhate

The Federal Court of Appeal (FCA) has overturned the Federal Court's original decision that Terry Tremaine (leader of the National Socialist Party of Canada) was not in contempt of court for not making efforts to remove postings found to be illegal under the CHRA and making new ones contrary to the CHRT order against him. The FCA rendered judgement that Tremaine was in fact guilty of contempt and sent it back to the Federal Court for sentencing.
