Human Rights Tribunal rules Brampton landlord must pay Muslim couple $12,000

It didn’t help his case that he shared a joke about a devout Muslim on his Facebook page.

Now the small landlord who rented out the main floor of his Brampton home to an Arab Muslim couple must pay them $12,000 for failing to accommodate their religious practices when showing their apartment to prospective tenants.

The Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario also found that he “harassed them and created a poisoned housing environment.”

His sins? John Alabi refused to remove his shoes when showing the bedroom where the couple prayed and while he always gave them the mandated 24-hour notice before showings, he didn’t always provide the five-minute heads-up they’d requested to ensure the wife was modestly dressed and they weren’t in the midst of their five daily prayers.

This is the same Kangaroo Kourt that refuses to enforce the law when Muslims blatantly discriminate: Landlords face no punishment for discrimination in online ads

    This is what totalitarianism looks like. The left has destroyed every institution in the western world, now they’re focusing on individuals, Donald Trump, Ann Coulter, Bill O’Reilly, Ezra Levant, a lowly landlord… eventually everyone will be afraid to express any opinion outside sanctioned speech.

    You mean there are still white people living in Brampton??

    • marty_p

      The landlord is an Arab Christian – that probably pissed the Mo’s off and contributed to the zeal to make the complaint.

      • ontario john

        Gangs of muslims in Brampton will probably behead him, if he is a Christian.

      • Oooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, is he? I was wondering about that last name. That adds a whole new dimension.

    I would rather do jail time than give 12k to the whiny c*nt. I would use my time in the slammer to meet and join any “social club” that understands the injustice of my sentence. I don’t know . . . Some Brotherhood or something.

    • mobuyus

      My “social club” is a Louiseville slugger. I would like to invite islamopiphicines to “join” my club.

    • I’m with you on that — I wouldn’t even show up to the hearing. Fuck ’em, make them get an arrest warrant and send Police — it would force the issue to be heard in a real Court.

      And as you suggested there has to be an organized strategy. E.g. in case you do in fact end up in jail because of an activist Judge, make sure well in advance that your money is transferred out of any accounts to the safe-keeping of a trusted confidante, in order to avoid any garnishments dictated by the activist Judge. And find “under-the-table” (cash only) employment during the process. What they do is illegal because it’s anti-constitutional violating your fundamental rights guaranteed by the Charter. You have committed no crime and incurred damages to no one — the judgement is political.

      I don’t think you can do the jail thing if convicted by the HRC, they go for the house.

      • Editor

        Wouldn’t surprise me.

        Then don’t buy into the Canadian housing bubble, which is another thing that sucks about Canada at the moment.

  • Waffle

    The Spanish Inquisition, Canadian-style. Gotta punish those Islamophobic heretics and make them pay!

  • Clink9

    This is all about getting us in line with our masters.

    Something is not quite right here. $6k each????? But I thought that a woman’s testimony was only worth half that of a man’s. I’d appeal.

  • Hard Little Machine

    This is why I am a ‘section 8’ landlord. Tenants are grateful to have a place to live and while some of them trash the place, the government pays for it.

  • So the Muslim complainants proved in a Court of law that their landlord caused $12,000 in damages? That he damaged their carpet to the tune of $12,000 and they presented the Court with a clean-up bill from “Carpets ‘R Us” for that amount? Was the carpet even theirs in the first place, or did it belong to the landlord? These are the sorts of issues that would be addressed in a real Court, before there would be any sort of financial compensation. Otherwise, no money.

    The Human Rights Commissions need to be abolished. And there needs to be a class action lawsuit against the HRCs to pay back all the money they have scammed over the years from people they have illegally “prosecuted” and fined for non-existent damages.

    btw, I graduated from the first University “School of Human Rights” in Canada — the first graduating class — as well as having some 14 years experience in the actual field — documenting genuine human rights abuses by a rogue regime abroad. What the HRCs are doing has absolutely nothing to do with Human Rights — on the contrary, the HRCs are acting more like the aforementioned “rogue regime” that I fought, which was successfully overthrown.

    • mobuyus

      Maybe it was a flying carpet that doesn’t work anymore having had the landlord and prospective tenants trundeling across it fully shod in an act of non-compliance with sharia law. I have a nice club I would invite these islamics to “join”.

      • Bataviawillem

        Yea, we have already proof of the second part of that assumption.

    • Editor

      That’s just it. The HRCs are not Courts of Law. Rules of evidence, disclosure and procedure do not apply.

      • Mickey Oberman

        HRC is a Star Chamber.
        It should be illegal in Canada.

  • ontario john

    I don’t understand how the muslim family didn’t laugh at the facebook joke. Muslims have a great sense of humour. Especially when someone gets beheaded.

  • freakypete98

    Choose who you rent out to very carefully.

  • Gary

    There would be ZERO terrorism by muslms if they washed their Hearts instead of being obsessed with washing their feet to enter the Jew-hating Homphobic Mosques .

    With just 1,000,000 muslims in Canada. What’s it going to be like with 3,000,000 when 30% of them are currently in the GTA which will become 900,000 10th century knuckle dragging supremacists turning the Public schools into madrassa’s.

    I still stand by my prediction for the PRIDE parade to be bombed once the islamist population get large enough and emboldened by the gutless Mayor and Premier.
    Gay bars will be attack too , but it will be too late to finally condemn islam after all those years of embracing the Pro-Hamas/Sharia Groups that marched in PRIDE.

  • Alain

    They say that experience is the best teacher, and the lesson here is to avoid having any dealings with Muslims in any shape or form.

    • Editor

      A very sound policy I would think.

  • Mike Reid

    This country is circling the drain..

    • A Hamilton Guy

      I have a outhouse,oops mosque around the corner, no problems yet ;but I am thinking of a big black dog if that happens. Animal rights get a phone call if they hurt the dog.

      • Mickey Oberman

        I have heard that pigs make delightful pets.
        A daily stroll past that “outhouse”with Porky on a leash would be an enlightening educational experience for many people.

    • mobuyus

      In Auatralia islam has got them circling the drain there too but in the opposite direction.
