I have filed a complaint with the BC Human Rights Tribunal this morning against the Nanaimo City Council based on a May 5, 2014 motion from Councillor Fred Pattje that was passed banning the Leadercast group from using the Vancouver Island Conference Centre (see here).
My complaint is based on:
Discrimination in accommodation, service and facility
because of the race, colour, ancestry, place of origin, religion, marital status, family status, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation or age of that person or class of persons. (see here)
My complaint demands:
That the Nanaimo City Council rescind the motion and a publicly issue an apology for passing the original motion.
I will update when I receive a reply from the BCHRT.
Update: My complaint has been received and noted by the BCHRT.
