I’m confused by this - the media release is about Navi Pillay’s speech saying she is “alarmed” over bill 78 in Quebec. The media release is from UN Watch, a group that … well, watches the UN to make sure they keep to their mandate, and proceeds to provide quotes from someone who WORKS at UN Watch talking about how this reaction is out of proportion.
Now, I’d be the last person to say that being included in a speech by the UN High Commissioner in a way that is even remotely negative, never mind mentioning ALARM, is anything but a good thing, however … the speech mentions no list, only the press release by UN Watch does. And even that doesn’t get addressed anywhere but the title.
So until I see more: Canada has alarmed the UN. BAD. (or maybe good - that law SHOULD alarm the UN. And us. And hopefully, our supreme court.)
But I’ll avoid saying that it’s on a Human Rights Watchlist - because that might come across as more official sounding than it really is.
