Supreme Court: Police Discriminated Against Shoplifter By Not Giving Her A Job

[Ottawa Citizen] A woman who was convicted of shoplifting and later rejected from becoming a police officer because of her past won her case at the Supreme Court of Canada yesterday.

In a 6-2 decision, the court ruled the woman’s rights were violated under Quebec’s Charter of Human Rights and that because the woman had received a pardon for her conviction, the police were not justified in using her past crime as a basis for rejection.
