This article supports an approach espoused by Burt Neuborne in Who's Afraid of the Human Rights Commission. In concurring with Neuborne's approach that the Commission should focus its resources on discrimination prevention over remedy, this article seeks in Part I to bolster Neuborne's approach to re-thinking Commission enforcement paradigms. In particular, the author analogizes the human rights problem to other areas of law and concludes that a pre-event model of preventative measures is the better paradigm for the Commission. In Part II, the author harmonizes this discussion by providing new proposals for the Commission's shifting paradigm on human rights enforcement.
