and to hide behind make-believe as your reason to do so takes away from the person you are discriminating against the right to challenge that discrimination.
in your first sentence in that previous post you are creating a right that does not exist and positing that i am trying to deny you that right. this is simply incorrect.
This is a private business, so the Charter does not apply. There is no Charter challenge to be made.
Bmats, the "right" originates from the Ontario Human Rights Code, and that's why it is being handled by the Ontario Human Rights Commission.
