Salsman v. London Sales Arena Corp. (Canada)

Nearly three years after a business in London’s Trails End market came under fire for employing a transgender person, the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal has ruled the market did discriminate against the business and its worker.

In September 2011, the owner of True 2 You, Karen Clarke, was approached by the management of the farmer’s market on Dundas St. East. They told her that unless she fired one of her employees, Daniella Freeman, they would be asked to take their business elsewhere.

Gender Identity Watch supports this ruling from the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal; no one should lose employment or business opportunities because of gender nonconformity or sex stereotypes.
