Hack’s mezuzahs under attack…Cabbie cries: “No Fare”

The Gazette – Cabbie contests fines

Montreal – A veteran Montreal cabbie who’s been fined a total of $764 for having photos of his daughter and the founder of the Chabad Lubavitch movement, two mezuzahs and a remembrance poppy in his car is going to court with a special request.

On June 9, Arieh Perecowicz will ask a Montreal Municipal Court judge to delay a ruling on his four tickets until the Quebec Human Rights Commission examines his complaint.

He is seeking $5,000 from the city of Montreal for a “discriminatory and unlawful” bylaw, saying it infringes on his freedom of expression, which is guaranteed in the Quebec Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms.

The rest.
