Women File Human Rights Complaints Over Breastfeeding In BC, Ontario

[Canwest] A woman who organized a “nurse-in” to protest at a Vancouver store filed a complaint to the BC Human Rights Tribunal on Thursday, the second such complaint in Canada in a week.

“This is actually a case of discrimination. I would like to see other women come out and file their complaints, as well.

“And I would like to see all companies to be educated and made aware of the law in B.C.,” she said.

“This is a right that breastfeeding women need to have so we can do our job.”

Valle said she has accepted H&M’s apology and doesn’t want to see anyone at the store fired over the incident, but the principle is worth filing a complaint over

Allison Loblaw, of London, Ont., launched an online complaint with the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario after she said she was humiliated for breastfeeding at a LaSenza lingerie store in Windsor, Ont., last month.

Flashback: Back in July, we at DWE warned you this was coming.
