Canadian Human Rights Tribunal Allows Discrimination Suit against Televising Cleveland Indians Games to Proceed

Here is the opinion in Cardinal v. Rogers Communications Inc.

An excerpt:

The applicant filed an Application alleging that the respondents discriminated against him because of ancestry, colour, and ethnic origin contrary to the Human Rights Code, R.S.O. 1990, c. H.19, as amended (the “Code”). Specifically, in his Application, the applicant sought an order enjoining Rogers Communications Inc. (“Rogers”); Major League Baseball (“MLB”), and the Cleveland Indians Baseball Company Limited Partnership (“Cleveland Team”) (collectively “the respondents”) from displaying, broadcasting, communicating or otherwise disseminating within Ontario images, representations, depictions or descriptions using the word “Indian” (the “Team Name”) or any form of that name in relation to the Cleveland Team and the “Chief Wahoo” logo (the “Logo”). In addition to filing this Application, the applicant filed a complaint with the Canadian Human Rights Commission (“CHRC”).
