White worker says Canada Revenue Agency discriminated against him

OSHAWA – A Canada Revenue Agency worker alleges his employer discriminated against him because he had the misfortune of being born a white man.

Joe Bate, 40, is representing himself in the Federal Court case. He claims he was an “efficient and productive” appeals officer for CRA, outshining many of his colleagues.

But instead of being promoted, he says his employer used the Employment Equity Act to pass him over.
