The media plays a powerful role in educating and shaping the public’s perception on human rights issues. That is why over the past year, the OHRC served as a regular voice offering a human rights-based perspective. Guest editorials and letters to the editor covered topics such as:
- Mental health and human rights
- Canada’s ratification of the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities
- Keswick High School students’ response to a race-based incident at their school
- APTN for coverage of the Winter Olympics in variety of Aboriginal languages.
