Restaraunt Mugged By Muslims & The Ontario Human Rights Tribunal

TORONTO – For a small business, it’s hard to fight back when you’ve been tagged as racist by Ontario’s human rights tribunal.

The owners of Le Papillon Park restaurant are devastated by a human rights system they feel unfairly tarred them as bigots and ordered them to pay $100,000 in compensation to three Muslim workers who said they were ordered to eat pork and threatened with replacement by “white” staff.

Paul and Danielle Bigue went to the Divisional Court to request a judicial review of the December 2013 ruling by the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, arguing the hearing was unfair and biased against them.
