Canada is know a one of the most stupid politically correct nations on Earth, more politically correct in fact than Sweden. After passing a same sex marriage law a few years ago the Canadian bureaucracy has banished perfectly good old fashioned terms like husband and wife to the dustbin of history to be replaced by the "inclusive" but impersonal and sterile "spouse." Also gone are son and daughter, uncle, aunt, grandad and grandma and most ridiculously mother and father.

Under the Canadian system those of us who have kids would be reduced to "parent 1" and "parent 2".

But even that level of idiocy is not enough for the United Nations.

The U. N. Human Rights Council has just launched a broadside against, Canada's flagrant violation of human rights, particularly the right to food. In the pompously titled ‘Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food,’ Olivier De Schutter, has accused the Canadians of unacceptable “rates of food insecurity,” and has demanded that the federal government in Ottawa to adopt “a national right to food strategy.”

Mr De Schutter is a prominent fuckwit bureacrat who recently published an article in The Guardian calling for the establishment of supranational “human rights courts” to address climate change. Yes, you read that right, this cupid stunt thinks climate change is violating your human rights.

In a press release issued yesterday, the dictatorial De Schutter, an expert on European Union law :)), declared in the best traditions of Orwellian newspeak:

Canada has long been seen as a land of plenty. Yet today one in ten families with a child under six is unable to meet their daily food needs. These rates of food insecurity are unacceptable, and it is time for Canada to adopt a national 'right to food' strategy.

WTF? Food insecurity? Is he suggesting a lot of Canadians have a panic attack when thy have to think about going down the supermarket and buying some scran?

Well as if that was not stupid enough he went on:

What I've seen in Canada is a system that presents barriers for the poor to access nutritious diets and that tolerates increased inequalities between rich and poor, and Aboriginal non-Aboriginal peoples. Canada is much admired for its achievements in the area of human rights, which it has championed for many years. But hunger and access to adequate diets, too, are human rights issues — and here much remains to be done.

A large number of Canadians are too poor to afford adequate diets. “800,000 households are food insecure in Canada. This is a country that is rich, but that fails to adapt the levels of social assistance benefits and its minimum wage to the rising costs of basic necessities, including food and housing. Food banks that depend on charity are not a solution: they are a symptom of failing social safety nets that the Government must address.

Ah, so what De Schutter means is that if DHWFs* in Canada are regularly sitting down to salmon, filet steak, pate de fois gras sarnies and a glass of fine wine to wash it down then if theslackers, no marks, weasters, dickheads, drunks, druggies and incompetents are not given the same it is a violation of their human rights. He subsequently criticised the Canadian government for levels of obesity in the country:

More than one in four Canadian adults are obese, and almost two thirds of the population is overweight or obese, costing at least 5 billion Canadian dollars annually in health care costs and in lost productivity. “This is also a result of poverty: adequate diets have become too expensive for poor Canadians, and it is precisely these people who have to pay the most when they live in food deserts and depend on convenience stores that charge higher prices than the main retailers.

So again we see the authoritarianism of the New World Order. You will soon no longer have the right live on porridge and lentil soup and spend all your money on rare stamps, not will you be able to pig out on pizzas, burgers, pies and mars bars rather than eating cabbage, beetroot smoothies and tofu. By having an unhealthy lifestyle you are violating your own human rights and the government will have to send the politically correct thought police round to sort you out.

In Canada Stephen Harper’s Conservative administration has rightly blasted the UN report, as well as UN interference in the sovereign affairs of one of the world’s leading democracies.

Boggart Blog is proud to award the maximum five Golden Orwells to Olivier De Schutter for his services to pseudo - liberal crypto - Naziism.

DHWFs = Decent hard - working folks
