Human Rights Complaints In Province Close To 300

The annual report of the Provincial Human Rights Commission includes 293 allegations of discrimination, of which 63 per cent were employment related.

As in previous years, the most common grounds of discrimination were physical or mental disability, which together came to 43 per cent of the cases. 

The chair of the Human Rights Commission Randy Dickinson concedes that judging by the volume of complaints, there's still a lot of work to do.
