In the wake of the 9/11 attacks and the heightened security measures that ensued, one can perhaps understand why a former Pakistani airforce pilot would be "profiled" by U.S. security officials. The man in question, a Canadian citizen who was refused training by Bombardier on its Challenger 604 jet in 2004 because he had been flagged as a possible security risk by the Americans, did not understand it. Nor did the Quebec Human Rights Commission, which agreed that he had been victimized by "stereotyping." The QHRC has just "levied the heaviest fine in its history" to Bombardier, ordering it to pay the man $319,000. That includes "$25,000 in moral damages and $50,000 in punitive damages."
Quel pay day, no?
But that's not the most shocking aspect of the case. For, along with shelling out big bucks to compensate this gent for this "humiliation," the Quebec "human rights" savants have made it clear that in any clash between American safety/security interests and Canadian "human rights" law, the latter must always prevail.
You know, sort of like how the devout believe sharia law must take precedence over kafir law.
