Christmas Christian? Discrimination!

The BC Tribunal - Christianity and Christmas are not connected you bigot! And talking about religion at work (if a Moslem might overhear) may be humiliating and discriminatory.

[61] Ms. Hamedanian alleges that Mr. Gallagher and Ms. Rovner discussed loudly that the Christmas party was a celebration of Christianity. Ms. Hamedanian states that she found this humiliating. Mr. Gallagher and Ms. Rovner deny making such remarks......

[107] Third, with respect to the alleged comment about Christmas being a celebration of Christianity, such a comment may, depending on all of the circumstances of a case, form part of an allegation of discrimination. My determination with respect to the significance of this comment will depend on my more global findings below relating to Ms. Hamedanian’s complaint. In other words, whether this allegation supports a conclusion that there is a reasonable prospect that Ms. Hamedanian’s complaint will succeed depends on the global context, which I discuss in more detail below.

On another note, maybe we should send some Plain English Campaign material to the Tribunal.
