Again the Alberta Human Rights Tribunals of Alberta interferes where it should NOT

In the recent decision of  Mihaly v. The Association of Professional Engineers, Geologists and Geophysicists of Alberta, 2014 AHRC 1 (CanLII) the Alberta Human Rights Tribunal has interfered with the ability of APEGGA, a self-regulated profession, to self regulate.  This decision ostensibly renders nugatory the legislation which authorizes engineers to self regulate.  Hopefully this will be appealed as it is not the place of the Alberta Human Rights Tribunal to dictate to APEGGA how to test for competency.

Ezra Levant, as he often does, leads the charge against this incremental interference with what are fundamentally private sectors of our society; the link to his site is Tweets show human rights judge’s unvarnished views .
