Re: GTA is Full of Them - Another "My Rights Are More Impor

said by urbanriot:

Nevermind their religious faith, I support any business owner that doesn't want to serve someone for whatever reason. A business owner has rights as well. What tribunal does our society offer to them, to cost others money?

A business owner does not have the right to discriminate in the offering of services on the basis of certain prohibited grounds, including gender.

However, in this case I don't see it as a matter of discrimination on the basis of gender, rather discrimination against the business owner on the basis of religion -- an equally protected right.

I believe she is being unreasonable, and may need to find a hobby.

Both arguably permissible under the Human Rights Code.
