Human Rights Complaint Against Jewish Holidays In Canada

TORONTO, March 31 (UPI) -- Toronto's York University has 21 days to review allegations by the Ontario Human Rights Commission that canceling classes for Jewish holidays is discriminatory.

Investigator Kim Hanson wrote a report seen by the Toronto Star that concludes the practice of canceling three days of classes for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur violates the provincial Human Rights Code's protection against discrimination based on a person's "creed."

Gee, I wonder who complained?

The Ontario Human Rights Commission has not made any decision regarding this case. An investigator issued a report which is not the official policy of the Commission. It is up to the Commissioner's to make the ultimate decision on whether or not the case should be sent to a hearing. Before they make that decision, both parties have 21 days to file written comments in response to the report.

The complaint was filed by Prof. David Noble, a secular Jew and noted anti-Semite.
