Canadian Senate Decides to Establish Committee to Deal with Human Rights Protection

A decision to establish a Senate Committee on Fundarental Rights and Human Freedoms was adopted by the Senate here following a campaign in the body led by Senator Arthur Roebuck, who is a staunch supporter of pro-Israel activities in Canada.

The committee will consider and report on rights and freedoms, “what they are and how they may be protected and preserved and what action, if any, can or should be taken to assure such rights to all persons in Canada.”
