As much as I’ve always wanted to throw one of those little yap-dogs out the door, it is more satisfying to see this case get thrown out instead.
A fight over a chihuahua described as a disabled man’s service dog has been dismissed by the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal.
There is no evidence the dog or its owner’s disability was a factor in wanting them to leave a bulk food store in Carleton Place, Ont., said the ruling by tribunal vice-chair Leslie Reaume.
Alex Allarie of Carleton Place filed the complaint against Keith and Leslie Rouble, the owners of the Granary Bulk and Natural Foods, after he and his tiny dog, Dee-O-Gee, were asked to leave the store in August 2008.
Allarie said he hasn’t yet received the document but was aware the case was dismissed and plans to appeal.
Great. Where is he going to appeal to? A real court? Good luck with that.
