Heterosexual men should get same parental leave benefits as mothers and gay fathers, B.C. man says

A British Columbia man has claimed a parental leave benefits policy, designed to be inclusive to same-sex parents, discriminates against him because he is a heterosexual father.

Alexander Angus filed a human rights complaint against his employer, the City of Victoria, and the Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 50 over his eligibility for Supplementary Employment Insurance Benefits, meant to top-up federal maternity leave benefits.
