The death penalty has always been a controversial topic that ignites many conflicts. Many would argue that despite how heinous the crime, is death penalty an act of justice or injustice? The death penalty violates 2 of the United Nations Human Rights Act. The first, having the right to life, liberty and security and Second no individual should be subjected to torture or cruel degrading treatment.
Amnesty have produced research reports that indicates Death penalty has no societal benefits, yet it is the most expensive punishment in the social, political and economic aspects. #S12017humanrts

As a female in New Zealand, I appreciate that I am far more lucky than the females in less fortunate countries. Being able to vote, choose who i want to love, drive, have access to university schooling and so much more didn't happen over night, but for us it happened a lot faster than other countries. Woman in counties such as Afghanistan, Chad, Guatemala and so many others, are faced with daily challenges that do not come under the Human rights act. Some have to hide their faces, some are raped, some have no schooling and are illiterate and many don't know that what they go through is not the norm. I think that we need to make more of an effort to help these woman in need and I hope that more people will understand that out of sight, should not mean out of mind. #myhumanrights

Under the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act and Human Rights Act we are entitled to the right to hold a belief, the right to change one’s religion or belief, the right to express one’s religion or belief, the right not to hold a belief. Every person in New Zealand can worship and have faith in what they want, when they want and however they want. without having to feel like they need to be ashamed of their religious belief. I for one am grateful that I have can walk past an AUT building available for others to practice their religion through prayer rooms.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced a bill that would criminalize anti-transgender speech, with violators receiving up to two years in prison.

The new bill, introduced May 17 on the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, aims to amend the Canadian Criminal Code to expand the country’s “hate speech” prohibitions to include any public speech or communication that “promotes hatred” on the basis of “gender identity” or “gender expression.” It would also change the Canadian Human Rights Act to cover transgender people.

closing statement:

I truly saith unto thee;
Love your enemies and those who spitefully use you & persecute you
for heaven sake;
and pray (meditate) on the eternal word of the most high and the
holy prophets & priests of ancient
times and latter day true saints - (revelation)

Pray that you may truly be son's & true daughter's of your father in
heaven's realm, dominion & kingdom -
for he causes the sun to rise on the wickedly evil and the
justifiably 'good' and sends down rain on the
truly righteous and just at heart and the wickedly unrighteous of
today's day and age!

(Revelations) - The prophecy has been foretold & prophesied -

(Touch not my anointed one's and do no harm to them, for I will rain
down fire upon the inhabitant of the earth to those who harm
my truly anointed ONE'S; thus saith the LORD!)

It is through great adversity & failure that our true character and
eternal faith is truly tested at some points in life yet it is the fire
of desire, relentless determination and the quest for survival of the
fittest & true success that honestly forges our beliefs and fortify our
true faith but faith without 'good' works or continuous 'good'
intentions is absolutely dead & useless - pick & choose wisely your
'truly good' intentions and act on them!

TRUTHFUL - EXHAUSTION MAY DEFEAT YOU FOR A BRIEF MOMENT IN TIME YET THAT
REST TIME DOESN'T CONSTITUTES DEFEAT OR FAILURE, JUST A NEUTRAL MOMENT IN
TIME BUT REMEMBER TO STAY FOCUS ON YOUR OWN PERSONAL COURSE IN LIFE BUT MOVE
FORWARD SLOWLY AND CONSISTENTLY AT YOUR OWN PACE & TIME - VISUALIZE YOUR EFFORT
& REALIZE WHAT IS YOUR GOALS AND NEVER EVER ALLOW ANYONE OR ANYBODY TO STAND IN
YOUR WAY TO REACH YOUR DESTINATION & QUEST IN LIFE! (THIS IS HAPPINESS & SUCCESS) -
BUT REMAIN ON YOUR CHOSEN JOURNEY WHEN YOU MAKE OR ACCOMPLISH IT, ALWAYS REMEMBER TRY TO
GIVE BACK WHENEVER YOU CAN ON YOUR SPECIFIC TIME FOR OTHERS!

It's a little bit double minded to suggest that the government stand for freedom democracy and human rights when they themselves wanted to do away with the human rights act, when they themselves have been busy taking away mental health care and services which help keep people sane, when they themselves have been responsible for taking away the most vulnerable people in societies PIP money, rights, healthcare.

They claim to love freedom but yet they have been busy working schemes to take away freedoms with new measures for spying and intrusion into peoples lives. They have been busy taking away so many aspects of peoples human rights, threatening those who work hard to provide those human rights for medicine and health care like the Doctors. They have been busy rigging up the system to take away more and more of the peoples rights, threatening those who have contributed, lived and worked in this country and now have family and homes here. They have been busy stripping the rights away of the elderly and their need for care, those who have been working all their lives and find themselves stuck working with no pension provision and a never ending increasing pension age.

They have been busy rejecting freedom and democracy by doing arms trade deals with corrupt crooks in foreign countries and dismissing the will of the people by going back on their word several times unless a barrage of public pressure forces them to change their mind. They are busy doing back door deals and agreements with the Chinese on trade and Ivory.

If they think in their Ivory Towers that they stand for anything resembling democracy anymore they are sadly misguided and they will see more and more desperate people with mental health issues, who have had their rights to justice, freedom and law taken away from them through the poverty this government is inflicting. Whom have had all legal aid taken away. Many who are being pressured from all angles in society will only increase in anger and yet again it is the innocents in public who are affected and those with an iron grip, a slippery tongue and all the power and money who care little about the people at all and just care about their position and status, power and public image remain completely unaffected by the plight of the peoples suffering. Making bold speeches that lack conviction and truth about motives of those involved.

Isaiah 10:2 to turn aside the needy from justice and to rob the poor of my people of their right, that widows may be their spoil, and that they may make the fatherless their prey!

Exodus 23:6 “You shall not pervert the justice due to your poor in his lawsuit.

Psalm 72:2 May he judge your people with righteousness, and your poor with justice!

Matthew 23
5 They do all their deeds to be seen by others. For they make their phylacteries broad and their fringes long, 6 and they love the place of honor at feasts and the best seats in the synagogues 7 and greetings in the marketplaces and being called rabbi[b] by others. 8 But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all brothers.[c] 9 And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven. 10 Neither be called instructors, for you have one instructor, the Christ. 11 The greatest among you shall be your servant. 12 Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.

13 “But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut the kingdom of heaven in people's faces. For you neither enter yourselves nor allow those who would enter to go in.[d] 15 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel across sea and land to make a single proselyte, and when he becomes a proselyte, you make him twice as much a child of hell[e] as yourselves.

16 “Woe to you, blind guides, who say, ‘If anyone swears by the temple, it is nothing, but if anyone swears by the gold of the temple, he is bound by his oath.’ 17 You blind fools! For which is greater, the gold or the temple that has made the gold sacred? 18 And you say, ‘If anyone swears by the altar, it is nothing, but if anyone swears by the gift that is on the altar, he is bound by his oath.’ 19 You blind men! For which is greater, the gift or the altar that makes the gift sacred? 20 So whoever swears by the altar swears by it and by everything on it. 21 And whoever swears by the temple swears by it and by him who dwells in it. 22 And whoever swears by heaven swears by the throne of God and by him who sits upon it.

23 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint and dill and cumin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness. These you ought to have done, without neglecting the others. 24 You blind guides, straining out a gnat and swallowing a camel!

25 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and the plate, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. 26 You blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and the plate, that the outside also may be clean.

27 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within are full of dead people's bones and all uncleanness. 28 So you also outwardly appear righteous to others, but within you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.

29 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you build the tombs of the prophets and decorate the monuments of the righteous, 30 saying, ‘If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we would not have taken part with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.’ 31 Thus you witness against yourselves that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets. 32 Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers. 33 You serpents, you brood of vipers, how are you to escape being sentenced to hell? 34 Therefore I send you prophets and wise men and scribes, some of whom you will kill and crucify, and some you will flog in your synagogues and persecute from town to town, 35 so that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah the son of Barachiah,[f] whom you murdered between the sanctuary and the altar. 36 Truly, I say to you, all these things will come upon this generation.

Ecclesiates 5
The Vanity of Wealth and Honor
8 If you see in a province the oppression of the poor and the violation of justice and righteousness, do not be amazed at the matter, for the high official is watched by a higher, and there are yet higher ones over them. 9 But this is gain for a land in every way: a king committed to cultivated fields.[g]

10 He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves wealth with his income; this also is vanity. 11 When goods increase, they increase who eat them, and what advantage has their owner but to see them with his eyes? 12 Sweet is the sleep of a laborer, whether he eats little or much, but the full stomach of the rich will not let him sleep.

13 There is a grievous evil that I have seen under the sun: riches were kept by their owner to his hurt, 14 and those riches were lost in a bad venture. And he is father of a son, but he has nothing in his hand. 15 As he came from his mother's womb he shall go again, naked as he came, and shall take nothing for his toil that he may carry away in his hand. 16 This also is a grievous evil: just as he came, so shall he go, and what gain is there to him who toils for the wind? 17 Moreover, all his days he eats in darkness in much vexation and sickness and anger.

18 Behold, what I have seen to be good and fitting is to eat and drink and find enjoyment[h] in all the toil with which one toils under the sun the few days of his life that God has given him, for this is his lot. 19 Everyone also to whom God has given wealth and possessions and power to enjoy them, and to accept his lot and rejoice in his toil—this is the gift of God. 20 For he will not much remember the days of his life because God keeps him occupied with joy in his heart.

Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada Mandate Letter
The TeamMandate LettersMinister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada Mandate Letter



Dear Ms. Wilson-Raybould:

I am honoured that you have agreed to serve Canadians as Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada.

We have promised Canadians a government that will bring real change – in both what we do and how we do it. Canadians sent a clear message in this election, and our platform offered a new, ambitious plan for a strong and growing middle class. Canadians expect us to fulfill our commitments, and it is my expectation that you will do your part in delivering on those promises to Canadians.

We made a commitment to invest in growing our economy, strengthening the middle class, and helping those working hard to join it. We committed to provide more direct help to those who need it by giving less to those who do not. We committed to public investment as the best way to spur economic growth, job creation, and broad-based prosperity. We committed to a responsible, transparent fiscal plan for challenging economic times.

I expect Canadians to hold us accountable for delivering these commitments, and I expect all ministers to do their part – individually and collectively – to improve economic opportunity and security for Canadians.

It is my expectation that we will deliver real results and professional government to Canadians. To ensure that we have a strong focus on results, I will expect Cabinet committees and individual ministers to: track and report on the progress of our commitments; assess the effectiveness of our work; and align our resources with priorities, in order to get the results we want and Canadians deserve.

If we are to tackle the real challenges we face as a country – from a struggling middle class to the threat of climate change – Canadians need to have faith in their government’s honesty and willingness to listen. I expect that our work will be informed by performance measurement, evidence, and feedback from Canadians. We will direct our resources to those initiatives that are having the greatest, positive impact on the lives of Canadians, and that will allow us to meet our commitments to them. I expect you to report regularly on your progress toward fulfilling our commitments and to help develop effective measures that assess the impact of the organizations for which you are answerable.

I made a personal commitment to bring new leadership and a new tone to Ottawa. We made a commitment to Canadians to pursue our goals with a renewed sense of collaboration. Improved partnerships with provincial, territorial, and municipal governments are essential to deliver the real, positive change that we promised Canadians. No relationship is more important to me and to Canada than the one with Indigenous Peoples. It is time for a renewed, nation-to-nation relationship with Indigenous Peoples, based on recognition of rights, respect, co-operation, and partnership.

We have also committed to set a higher bar for openness and transparency in government. It is time to shine more light on government to ensure it remains focused on the people it serves. Government and its information should be open by default. If we want Canadians to trust their government, we need a government that trusts Canadians. It is important that we acknowledge mistakes when we make them. Canadians do not expect us to be perfect – they expect us to be honest, open, and sincere in our efforts to serve the public interest.

Our platform guides our government. Over the course of our four-year mandate, I expect us to deliver on all of our commitments. It is our collective responsibility to ensure that we fulfill our promises, while living within our fiscal plan. Other issues will arise or will be brought to our attention by Canadians, stakeholders, and the public service. It is my expectation that you will engage constructively and thoughtfully and add priorities to your agenda when appropriate.

As Minister, you will be held accountable for our commitment to bring a different style of leadership to government. This will include: close collaboration with your colleagues; meaningful engagement with Opposition Members of Parliament, Parliamentary Committees and the public service; constructive dialogue with Canadians, civil society, and stakeholders, including business, organized labour, the broader public sector, and the not-for-profit and charitable sectors; and identifying ways to find solutions and avoid escalating conflicts unnecessarily. As well, members of the Parliamentary Press Gallery, indeed all journalists in Canada and abroad, are professionals who, by asking necessary questions, contribute in an important way to the democratic process. Your professionalism and engagement with them is essential.

Canadians expect us, in our work, to reflect the values we all embrace: inclusion, honesty, hard work, fiscal prudence, and generosity of spirit. We will be a government that governs for all Canadians, and I expect you, in your work, to bring Canadians together.

You are expected to do your part to fulfill our government’s commitment to transparent, merit-based appointments, to help ensure gender parity and that Indigenous Canadians and minority groups are better reflected in positions of leadership.

You have a double role as both Minister of Justice and the Attorney General of Canada. As Minister of Justice, you are the legal advisor to Cabinet. In this capacity you are responsible with the administration of justice, including policy in such areas as criminal law, family law, human rights law, public law and private international law, constitutional law and Aboriginal justice. As the Attorney General of Canada, you are the chief law officer of the Crown, responsible for conducting all litigation for the federal government and for upholding the Constitution, the rule of law, and respect for the independence of the courts.

As Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, your overarching goal will be to ensure our legislation meets the highest standards of equity, fairness and respect for the rule of law. I expect you to ensure that our initiatives respect the Constitution of Canada, court decisions, and are in keeping with our proudest legal traditions. You are expected to ensure that the rights of Canadians are protected, that our work demonstrates the greatest possible commitment to respecting the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and that our government seeks to fulfill our policy goals with the least interference with the rights and privacy of Canadians as possible.

In particular, I will expect you to work with your colleagues and through established legislative, regulatory, and Cabinet processes to deliver on your top priorities:

Lead a process, supported by the Minister of Health, to work with provinces and territories to respond to the Supreme Court of Canada decision regarding physician-assisted death.
Develop, in collaboration with the Minister of Indigenous and Northern Affairs, and supported by the Minister of Status of Women, an approach to, and a mandate for, an inquiry into murdered and missing Indigenous women and girls in Canada, including the identification of a lead Minister.
Review our litigation strategy. This should include early decisions to end appeals or positions that are not consistent with our commitments, the Charter or our values.
You should conduct a review of the changes in our criminal justice system and sentencing reforms over the past decade with a mandate to assess the changes, ensure that we are increasing the safety of our communities, getting value for money, addressing gaps and ensuring that current provisions are aligned with the objectives of the criminal justice system. Outcomes of this process should include increased use of restorative justice processes and other initiatives to reduce the rate of incarceration amongst Indigenous Canadians, and implementation of recommendations from the inquest into the death of Ashley Smith regarding the restriction of the use of solitary confinement and the treatment of those with mental illness.
Work with the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness and the Minister of Indigenous and Northern Affairs to address gaps in services to Aboriginal people and those with mental illness throughout the criminal justice system.
Working with the Ministers of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness and Health, create a federal-provincial-territorial process that will lead to the legalization and regulation of marijuana.
Undertake modernization efforts to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the criminal justice system, in cooperation with provinces and territories. This should include improved use of information technology to make the system more efficient and timely, exploration of sentencing alternatives and bail reform, and the creation of a unified family court.
Support the Minister of Canadian Heritage to restore a modern Court Challenges Program.
Work with the Ministers of Finance and National Revenue to develop a modernized regulatory and legal framework governing the Charitable and Not-for-Profit sectors.
Engage all parties in the House of Commons to ensure that the process of appointing Supreme Court Justices is transparent, inclusive and accountable to Canadians. Consultations should be undertaken with all relevant stakeholders and those appointed to the Supreme Court should be functionally bilingual.
Support the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness in his efforts to repeal key elements of Bill C-51, and introduce new legislation that strengthens accountability with respect to national security and better balances collective security with rights and freedoms.
Support the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness in his efforts to repeal key elements of Bill C-42 and implement our commitment to reduce the number of handguns and assault weapons on our streets.
Implement our platform commitments to toughen criminal laws and bail conditions in cases of domestic assault, in consultation with stakeholders and with the goal of keeping survivors and children safe. You should undertake this work in consultation with the Minister of Status of Women and the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness.
Work with the President of the Treasury Board to enhance the openness of government, including supporting his review of the Access to Information Act to ensure that Canadians have easier access to their own personal information, that the Information Commissioner is empowered to order government information to be released and that the Act applies appropriately to the Prime Minister’s and Ministers’ Offices, as well as administrative institutions that support Parliament and the courts.
Introduce government legislation to add gender identity as a prohibited ground for discrimination under the Canadian Human Rights Act, and to the list of distinguishing characteristics of “identifiable group” protected by the hate speech provisions of the Criminal Code.
These priorities draw heavily from our election platform commitments. The government’s agenda will be further articulated through Cabinet discussions and in the Speech from the Throne when Parliament opens.

I expect you to work closely with your Deputy Minister and his or her senior officials to ensure that the ongoing work of your department is undertaken in a professional manner and that decisions are made in the public interest. Your Deputy Minister will brief you on issues your department may be facing that may require decisions to be made quickly. It is my expectation that you will apply our values and principles to these decisions, so that issues facing your department are dealt with in a timely and responsible manner, and in a way that is consistent with the overall direction of our government.

Our ability, as a government, to successfully implement our platform depends on our ability to thoughtfully consider the professional, non-partisan advice of public servants. Each and every time a government employee comes to work, they do so in service to Canada, with a goal of improving our country and the lives of all Canadians. I expect you to establish a collaborative working relationship with your Deputy Minister, whose role, and the role of public servants under his or her direction, is to support you in the performance of your responsibilities.

In the coming weeks, the Privy Council Office (PCO) will be contacting you to set up a meeting with PCO officials, your Deputy Minister and the Prime Minister’s Office to further discuss your plans, commitments and priorities.

We have committed to an open, honest government that is accountable to Canadians, lives up to the highest ethical standards, and applies the utmost care and prudence in the handling of public funds. I expect you to embody these values in your work and observe the highest ethical standards in everything you do. When dealing with our Cabinet colleagues, Parliament, stakeholders, or the public, it is important that your behaviour and decisions meet Canadians’ well-founded expectations of our government. I want Canadians to look on their own government with pride and trust.

As Minister, you must ensure that you are aware of and fully compliant with the Conflict of Interest Act and Treasury Board policies and guidelines. You will be provided with a copy of Open and Accountable Government to assist you as you undertake your responsibilities. I ask that you carefully read it and ensure that your staff does so as well. I draw your attention in particular to the Ethical Guidelines set out in Annex A of that document, which apply to you and your staff. As noted in the Guidelines, you must uphold the highest standards of honesty and impartiality, and both the performance of your official duties and the arrangement of your private affairs should bear the closest public scrutiny. This is an obligation that is not fully discharged by simply acting within the law. Please also review the areas of Open and Accountable Government that we have expanded or strengthened, including the guidance on non-partisan use of departmental communications resources and the new code of conduct for exempt staff.

I know I can count on you to fulfill the important responsibilities entrusted in you. In turn, please know that you can count on me to support you every day in your role as Minister.

I am deeply grateful to have this opportunity to serve with you as we build an even greater country. Together, we will work tirelessly to honour the trust Canadians have given us.

Yours sincerely,



Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau, P.C., M.P.

The human rights act was made to ensure that everyone has a right to anything. Either it be standing up for themselves or standing up for something that they believe in and also doing things in their own will without anyone telling them what they can and cannot do. For me, this is a subject that has a really big sentimental meaning to it only because the human rights act does not reach out to other countries such as South Africa and Somalia where they do not have access to any of the resources that have an affect not only on them but on the whole of society as well. Throughout my entire life i have been expected to give money to the less fortunate because i was fortunate myself to be welcomed into a family where i have everything i need. However, the human rights act says that everyone is entitled to anything they need to. But the opposite is seen in other countries.

Service Animals in Housing
Know Your Rights

General Requirement: Housing providers must allow service or assistance animal use!

The Maine Human Rights Act (“MHRA”) requires that housing providers allow the use of service animals and assistance animals by individuals with disabilities. While there are certain exceptions (such as if the service animal or assistance animal is unsafe or overly disruptive), the general rule is one of inclusion, requiring that the service or assistance animal be allowed to be present.

Definition of Service Animal and Assistance Animal: what is the difference?

The Maine Human Rights Act defines “service animal” as a dog that has been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of a person with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual or other mental disability. The work the dog is trained to do must be directly related to the person’s disability. Examples include: assisting a person with a vision loss in navigation; alerting a person with a hearing loss to the presence of people or sounds; providing physical assistance with balance and stability to a person with a mobility disability; and reminding a person with an intellectual disability to take a medication. :

Maine law separately defines a category of “assistance animals”, often referred to as “emotional support”, “comfort” or “therapy” animals. An “assistance animal” is any animal (dog, cat, bird, etc.) that is EITHER determined necessary to mitigate the effects of a mental or physical disability by a physician, psychologist, physician’s assistant, nurse practitioner or licensed social worker OR is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a physical or mental disability. This can include the types of externally-observable work service animals provide but also can include providing emotional support, well-being, comfort, or companionship related to an invisible disability (such as depression, anxiety, and certain phobias); they can - but do not always - have special training to perform tasks that assist people with disabilities.

A housing provider is required to allow a tenant to be accompanied by an assistance/service animal if the animal is necessary to allow the disabled person to enjoy the benefits of the housing. A service/assistance animal is an aid that helps a person with a disability access the housing accommodation, like a wheelchair or cane. Service/assistance animals are not pets; so “no pet” policies do not apply to them.

As this change in Maine law is recent (July 2016), many people with disabilities are not aware of the new distinction in Maine law between service and assistance animals.

What about tenants’ visitors who have Assistance/ Service Animals?

A housing provider is also required to allow a person with a disability who is visiting a tenant to be accompanied with a service/ assistance animal, even if the housing provider has a “no pets” policy. Why? Because the MHRA prohibits discriminating against a tenant because of his/her association with a person with a disability. If the tenant’s visitor is a person with a disability accompanied by an assistance/ service animal, the housing provider may not deny the tenant the benefits and privileges of the housing accommodation (like having visitors) because of the visitor’s disability-related need for a service/ assistance animal.

Can a housing provider ask for the animal’s identification (tags/collar/ID)? No!

It is not necessary for a service/assistance animal to have a special ID card, be certified, be registered, or wear a harness or collar identifying it as an assistance/service animal. Some service/assistance animals have these characteristics, but they are not required in order for an assistance/ service animal to be covered under the MHRA.

What can a housing provider ask a person with a Service/Assistance Animal?

A housing provider may ask about the nature of the person’s disability if it is not obvious and for some evidence that the service/assistance animal has been trained or prescribed. Evidence of training may be shown by demonstration. The housing provider may not demand that a person with a disability provide a medical release to review the person’s medical records or talk to the person’s medical provider.

Terms of Use

The person with a service/assistance animal should be afforded the same housing experience on the same terms as other tenants without service/assistance animals. This means, for example, that the person should not be isolated or removed from the normal usage areas of the housing accommodation. It is also unlawful for an apartment owner to designate specific apartments for tenants with service/assistance animals.

It is illegal to charge a person with a service / assistance animal extra fees for the animal. For example, a housing provider cannot impose an additional security deposit for a service/assistance animal, even if it charges such a fee for pets. Remember, a service/ assistance animal is not a pet; it is an aid that allows the person with a disability an equal opportunity to use and enjoy the housing. Housing providers may charge for damage (other than normal wear and tear) caused by service/assistance animals, however, if it is the normal practice to charge for damage.

A service/assistance animal generally must be on a halter/tether/leash when it is outside the residence of the tenant with a disability or is visiting a tenant with a person with a disability, unless the handler’s disability prevents using a halter/ tether/leash, or doing so would interfere with the work or task the animal is trained to do. If the animal cannot be on a halter/ tether/leash, it must be otherwise under the handler’s control (such as through voice command or hand signals).

What if there’s a problem with a Service/Assistance Animal? Can it be removed?

Yes, under certain, limited circumstances. A service/assistance animal may be removed from the premises if either (a) it is a direct threat to the health or safety of others, or (2) it would result in substantial physical damage to the property of others, or (3) it substantially interferes with the reasonable enjoyment of the housing by others. A dog that regularly barks at night while other tenants are trying to sleep or nips at other people, for example, can permissibly be removed. There must be a factual basis for removing the animal, however, and not simply fears or stereotypes about certain animals. For example, an animal with a history of aggressive behavior may be denied access or removed but not one that is merely a certain size or breed. If tenants have allergies to the animal, it may be necessary to accommodate all people concerned, such as by keeping the animal away from the person with allergies while still allowing the person with the animal access to the housing.

What if the landlord’s rules or insurance excludes certain animal breeds/types?

The landlord cannot impose breed restrictions or limit the type of animal permitted as an assistance animal other than to comply with Maine law (such as zoning ordinances or restrictions on exotic animals). A landlord may not want to allow a certain breed or animal because it is not covered by the building’s insurance. In that case, the analysis focuses on whether the request for an assistance animal is a reasonable accommodation, considering factors like availability of an insurance rider or another insurance policy and the total cost compared to the resources available. Landlords cannot require the tenant to get insurance unless it requires all tenants to do so.



THE MAINE HUMAN RIGHTS ACT
Definitions in the law:

Pursuant to 5 M.R.S. §4553(9-E), “service animal” means:

For the purposes of subchapter 5, a dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual or other mental disability. Other species of animals, whether wild or domestic, trained or untrained, are not service animals for the purposes of this definition. The work or tasks performed by a service animal must be directly related to the individual's disability. Examples of such work or tasks include, but are not limited to, assisting an individual who is totally or partially blind with navigation and other tasks, alerting an individual who is deaf or hard of hearing to the presence of people or sounds, providing nonviolent protection or rescue work, pulling a wheelchair, assisting an individual during a seizure, alerting an individual to the presence of allergens, retrieving items such as medicine or a telephone, providing physical support and assistance with balance and stability to an individual with a mobility disability and helping a person with a psychiatric or neurological disability by preventing or interrupting impulsive or destructive behaviors. The crime deterrent effects of an animal's presence and the provision of emotional support, well-being, comfort or companionship do not constitute work or tasks for the purposes of this definition.

Pursuant to 5 M.R.S. §4553(9)(1-H), “assistance animal”, for the purposes of the MHRA’s housing law, means:

A. An animal that has been determined necessary to mitigate the effects of a physical or mental disability by a physician, psychologist, physician assistant, nurse practitioner or licensed social worker; or

B. An animal individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a physical or mental disability, including, but not limited to, guiding individuals with impaired vision, alerting individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing to intruders or sounds, providing reasonable protection or rescue work, pulling a wheelchair or retrieving dropped items.

Unlawful housing discrimination on the basis of disability

It is unlawful housing discrimination, in violation of this Act: . . . For any owner, lessee, sublessee, managing agent or other person having the right to sell, rent, lease or manage a housing accommodation or any of their agents to refuse to permit the use of an assistance animal or otherwise discriminate against an individual with a physical or mental disability who uses an assistance animal at the housing accommodation unless it is shown by defense that the service animal poses a direct threat to the health or safety of others or the use of the service anim
