‘Merry Christmas’ bus complaint will go to human rights commission

A Saskatoon man who’s upset with the city for displaying “Merry Christmas” messages on city buses says he will take his complaint to the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission.

Ashu Solo says he’s taking that step after Saskatoon’s executive committee — which is city council in committee form — decided Monday not to take any further action on the issue.

Solo says because the illuminated messages celebrate a holiday for a single religion, Christianity, it’s a form of religious discrimination.
