Migrant workers deserve better

Last week the CBC reported on the case of Sheldon McKenzie, a farm worker from Jamaica who had been coming to Ontario for 12 years for seasonal work at farms.  Last year he was injured at work and, according to the CBC article, "the program that brought him to Canada stripped him of his labour rights after he was hurt, then tried to cut off his access to health care."  He died because of the injuries.

The dark side of human rights

The Human Right to Dominate

by Nicola Perugini and Neve Gordon
(Oxford University Press,
2015;
$24.95)

For many of us, human rights are somewhat like puppies: fluffy, benevolent things, a source of unalloyed happiness and good (although perhaps somewhat lacking in the tooth department). All upsides, no downsides; the world is an incontestably better place with them in it.

Critical scholarship on human rights, however, raises a host of serious questions about the ability of human rights to achieve or promote justice.
