Federal Court: Canadian Human Rights Commission Must Hold New Hearing For Cop

[Chatham Daily News] A former RCMP undercover drug cop will have second chance to argue that he was passed over for a job of overseeing an elite unit because he’s black.

A federal court has ruled that the Canadian Human Rights Commission must hold a new hearing for Joseph Herbert, 41, who grew up in Toronto’s Jane Street — Finch Avenue area.

The commission had previously dismissed his claim that he was not made head of an air marshal program because of his race. He appealed that decision to the federal court.
