Just in case you thought the CHRC was in safe hands

Never heard of her, and I don't know that I'd want to know. Still, give us a blast of her past, if you will.

No, I don't mean this kind of crap from a p.r. machine; I mean who is this thunderously dense creature?

Ms. Lynch gained her expertise in human rights through quasi-judicial service determining grievance and discipline appeals within the Canadian policing community (1985-1998). She was also a pioneer in women’s rights, at her Ottawa law firm Lynch and Associates and later as a partner of the national law firm, Lang Michener. Ms. Lynch is world renowned for developing the field of organizational conflict competence through the implementation of Integrated Conflict Management Systems (ICMS). The Lynch ICMS Model is the foundation for many of the world’s most advanced ICMS, including the United States Department of Homeland Security’s Transportation Security Administration, the World Bank, and several Canadian federal departments and agencies. Ms. Lynch is also a respected Alternative Dispute Resolution practitioner, with particular expertise in mediation and the facilitation of complex group processes.
Ms. Lynch is an active contributor to the Ottawa community, and is currently a member of the Audit Committee at the University of Ottawa. Ms. Lynch has been awarded many honours including Queen’s Counsel, the Queen’s Jubilee Medal, and the Ottawa Business Women’s Achievement Award. A graduate of Queen's University and Osgoode Hall, Ms. Lynch was called to the Bar in Ontario in 1977.

This is crap. It doesn't let us in on anything of value. Who is this woman in charge of so much of Canada's future and the life of its citizens?
