Canadian Fascism - Free Speech takes a hit as comedian is fined for making a joke by "Human Right Tribunal"

In Canada, Orwellian "Human Rights" Tribunals exist to deprive citizens of human rights and liberty, not give them freedoms:
...Mike Ward is ready to take on a Quebec Human Rights Tribunal ruling that says he must pay $35,000 to Jérémy Gabriel for making jokes that violated the rights of the child singer with disabilities...

...The tribunal ordered Ward to pay Gabriel $25,000 in moral damages and $10,000 in punitive damages for a joke dating back to 2010. The decision also requires Ward to pay an additional $5,000 for moral damages and $2,000 for punitive damages to Jérémy's mother, Sylvie Gabriel...

...In Ward's 2010 comedy bit, he said he was happy Gabriel  — or as he called him, Petit Jérémy — was getting so much attention following the papal visit because he believed Gabriel had a terminal illness and was going to die.

Ward thought the papal visit was part of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, an organization that grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions.

"But now, five years later, and he's still not dead! … Me, I defended him, like an idiot, and he won't die!" Ward said, adding that Gabriel wasn't dying, but "ugly."...
