MONTREAL — A Quebec City university is being criticized for a questionnaire that required job candidates to reveal whether they’ve been tested for HIV, the date they last menstruated and whether they’ve been treated for cancer.
Universite Laval’s vice-rector for human resources said the questionnaire was used to find out whether candidates would need workplace accommodation.
“It’s a standard practice in human resources to verify if a person has particular conditions that mean we need to adapt their work environment,” Lyne Bouchard told The Canadian Press.
Bouchard confirmed the university stopped using the questionnaire after Jan. 10, when local media began to ask questions.

She added that no applicant was ever removed from the job pool on the basis of their answers and that the university had not received any complaints about the form.
The 40-question, four-page form had been given out to people applying for jobs at the university since 2009.
Among other questions, respondents were asked to list the cause of death of close family members and answer whether they’d consulted a psychologist or made a claim to Quebec’s workplace health and safety board.
In a section reserved for women, applicants were asked to jot down the date of their last menstruation and gynecology exam, and declare whether they’d ever been pregnant or had an abortion.
Bouchard said she couldn’t explain why some of these last questions had been included, admitting they “contravened the values” of the university.
According to human rights lawyer Stephanie Fournier, the questionnaire is clearly discriminatory and violates Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
The principle is clear: the mere fact of asking, in a selection process, questions on the state of health or any ground of protected discrimination, be it civil status, religion, sexual orientation, constitutes discrimination.

Fournier said that in the case of pre-employment contracts the burden of proof is on the employer to prove that the questions are relevant to a candidate’s ability to do the job in question.
Employers may not, for example, use such questionnaires to rule out candidates with a greater risk of absenteeism or who might become pregnant, she added.
Bouchard insisted the information in the questionnaire was kept confidential and was sent directly to a doctor.
She said the hiring process was currently undergoing a review that would likely lead to the creation of a new questionnaire.

The hiring process will have a revue? NO KIDDING! HAHAHAHA!!! This is all thanks to Our idiot Boy Justin with his duplicitous double dealing- insisting that he is a feminist while ENSURING that the maximum number of Misogynist Muslim women haters comes to Canada! Either Our idiot Boy is a fearful LIAR and hypocrite about his feminist leanings or he is a completely ignorant FOOL regarding Muslim views on women! Has it never occurred to Our idiot Boy that Sharia Law mandates a TOTAL RE-WRITE of about half our Constitution related to family law and women`s rights|?

Canada is simply the latest western country to be colonized by the radical Muslim cancer! And the Laval hiring policy of asking "when did you last menstruate" is simply an obvious sign of that poisoned Muslim misogyny- after all- the University probably thinks it has a duty to keep unclean women away from True Believers! So University cowards will apologize and cry crocodile tears of fake shame and re-work their misogyny in more subtle ways!

Here is another article exposing the bitter fruit being produced by mis-guided LIE-beral immigration and national security foolishness. With some comments my own in brackets):

Jihadi brides: Families want ISIS women, terror offspring to return

The ISIS caliphate is pulverized. Now, jihadi brides want to come back to Canada.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Roll out the welcome wagon, the brides of ISIS want to come home!

No, that’s not a Rogers and Hammerstein musical.

Considering the long standing Trudope family hostility to what Papa Pierre called “Cdn Imperialism” -its no wonder Our idiot Boy Justin is convinced these ex Isis creeps will “have a powerful voice in Canada” and its just too bad that the idiot Boy does not want to dwell on what poison those voices will be spewing!)

CBC News is reporting that the families of four young Canadian women who had children with ISIS thugs are hoping their kin can come home now that the caliphate has been crushed.

(Our idiot Boy is apparently unconcerned that these radical traitors will rrturb here and start working to undermine our values and govt! The idiot Boy thinks HE will benefit from their hate!)

Herman Deparice-Okomba, director of Montreal’s Centre for the Prevention of Radicalization Leading to Violence, told CBC his group started receiving increasingly urgent calls from the women’s families early last month.

“We are talking about four to five families with whom we talk to daily,” he said.

The women’s families claim that they were brainwashed and are so desperate to come home they will even risk criminal prosecution.

(OH fine! So called “Moderate” Muslims- invited here by shameless vote buying LIE-berals- and who expect to use popular votes to implement Sharia Law in Canada are now advocating on behalf of Isis radicals who want to use guns to implement Sharia Law here!)

According to CSIS, about 60 Islamic extremists have returned to Canada so far. The spy agency estimates 180 Canadians have left their homeland to join terror groups.

So far, unlike France, the United Kingdom and the U.S., Canada has been unwilling to kill terrorists before they can get on a plane home. And a former CSIS analyst said the government is at odds on what to do.

(The idea of shooting ISIS thugs in the head when they are not looking as payback for their career of rape and murder is certainly appealing as it is a quick and final way to dispose of a VILE problem. However, shooting lunatic allegedly Cdn women with small kids in tow is another matter. Frankly I am inclined to think the best thing to do with these traitors and thug husbands is to leave them where they are- if they can travel to these third world pest holes to defend ISIS then they can stay there and live in the land they defended- under the new and more “benevolent” govt that they TRIED TO DESTROY!)

“Theoretically, it’s against the law, we should charge them with a crime,” Phil Gurski told the network, adding that CSIS’s challenge is gathering evidence on returning death cult members.

(Exactly- its all a HUGE COST to deal with snakes that no longer have teeth to bite with so let them ROT in the mess they made!)

And while the spy agency has information on jihadists, it is seldom admissible in court, he said. Gurski added there are questions on whether their extremist offspring can become Canadians.

(If the kids are born to traitors who have deliberately travelled to a third world war zone then we have NO obligation to them! And can safely IGNORE the swine!)

Deparice-Okomba said the public’s safety is the top concern.

“We have to make sure that these people do not pose a threat to us,” he said.

Jihadi brides who made the journey to the war zone were almost immediately married to an ISIS killer. Once wed, their dreary lives became a 1950s flashback of raising kids, cooking and cleaning.

(Yes- OUR public safety is PARAMOUNT! None of these -people should be allowed to come to Canada! We have the decency not to be vindictive and shoot them out of hand but we CAN simply dispense with them and leave them to ROT in some far away place!)
