Product Description


"To my knowledge, this is the only book of its kind to be published in Canada and provides essential information for balanced and informed discussions of human rights commissions and tribunals in our country." Sarah Lugtig, Faculty of Law, University of Manitoba

“A truly impressive work. There is simply nothing that compares in providing this kind of overview of human rights legislation in Canada.” Paul Champ, Champ and Associates

“Pearl Eliadis’ book is the leading reference text on human rights law in Canada. It is comprehensive in its review of the law and, at the same time, it is an engaging narrative that explores the most divisive human rights issues in the country, It is an essential book for any scholar or practitioner in the human rights field in Canada.” Dominique Clément, associate professor of sociology, University of Alberta. Author of Equality Deferred: Sex Discrimination and British Columbia's Human Rights State 1953-84

“Eliadis provides a reasoned, consistent and coherent explanation of the history, rationale and current functioning of the system. She provides clear explanations and definitions for terms, concepts and principles that are regularly misused, conflated or bandied about for purely rhetorical effect. It is a signal potential benefit of Speaking Out on Human Rights that by sweeping aside the cartoonish posturing and name calling that have defaced much of the overheated attack on the Canadian Human Rights System, it may make possible nuanced and credible discussions aimed at improving that system and may lead to a better understanding of the human right the system is meant to protect.” Mark J. Freiman, Literary Review of Canada
