Mr. Levant's adventure with the AHRCC provided him with a unique platform from which to skewer the entire Canadian human rights industry.

Until he published Shakedown, Canadians had no idea what was happening in the inner sancta of these kangaroo courts. His diligent research demonstrated that these once-benign organizations have evolved into marauding groups of unaccountable amateurs guided only by their own stunted ideas of how Canadians should behave.

Any Canadian concerned with the very real erosion of our constitutionally guaranteed freedom of speech, should read this book.

Great read. Nice to read another view of the Kangaroo Courts that are the provincial Human rights courts. A view of what happens when someone is given license to prosecute who ever they want, for anything they want without repercussion. There have been some recent cases that would be great additions to the book.

This erudite and carefully written monograph should be required reading for every Canadian, particularly those who lean to the green left.

Mr. Levant exposes the CHRC as an incredibly outsized bureaucracy on a desperate "make-work" mission. Why not weed the CHRC out all-together to save some tax-payer dollars and put these cases back into the real courts with due process.

A readable treatment of an unpleasant reality in Canadian life and law.
A stray vine of totalitarianism creeps up the wall of English Common Law through the so called Human Rights Commissions.
The writer exposes the vulnerability of free speech to this threat.

If you're offended, take 'em to court on your dime, not mine. And what leftist, agenda driven troll wrote the Quill & Quire product review? The Human Rights Commissioner?

Shakedown is a brilliant "take no prisoners" expose of the insanity which reigns supreme at the Canadian Human Rights Commission and its provincial counterparts. A shocking yet deeply compelling read. Buy it, Read it, Pass it on.

one man can make a difference, though it takes labour and sacrifice.
Way to go Ezra!

Clearly the Gov't is too involved in our lives; this book shows us how bad they've gotten.
