City apologizes after security guard barred man from women's bathroom: will 're-educate' staff

The City of Hamilton has apologized that a security guard insisted a person who looked like a male use, first, the men's, and then the family washroom at the MacNab Bus Terminal last year, despite his insistence he self-identified as female.

But the man in question, identified as "A.B." in the subsequent flurry of communications amongst the city, its bus system named the Hamilton Street Railway, and the Ontario Human Rights Commission, wasn't happy to be denied the women's washroom, and was reportedly "left in tears."

Although the city immediately apologized, as did the guard, and committed to the principle that people can use the washroom appropriate to their "self-identity," A.B. complained to the OHRC, which took the last 12 months to work out just how the city would prevent a reoccurrence.

On Thursday, an Ontario Superior Court justice agreed to allow the unidentified 81-year-old have doctors help him die. That will likely take place this weekend, his lawyers said.

Author Robert Spencer wrote Sept. 4 in Front Page Magazine, "This is no longer just a 'refugee crisis.' This is a hijrah."

Hijrah is the Islamic doctrine of migration, which is a form of stealth jihad.

The Christian organization that the City of Toronto banned from holding a musical festival in a downtown public square joined LifeSiteNews on Monday in delivering a 30,000-name petition to Mayor John Tory's office.

In addition they delivered a petition of around 10,000 signatures by TheRebel.media. Both called on the city to reverse its decision.

If by Tuesday the city has not revoked its ruling, the group, Voices of the Nations (VON), will make good its promise to sue the city and the board for violating its Charter rights of freedom of religion and expression.
