Tribunal hears gay rights complaint against Grand Forks Bed and Breakfast
The owners of a bed and breakfast are before a B.C. Human Rights Tribunal in Kelowna for turning away a homosexual couple.
Two gay men from the Lower Mainland claim they were dicriminated against when a couple who owned a bed and breakfast in Grand Forks turned them down for lodging in 2009.
Shaun Eadie testified on Monday he booked a single-bed room for himself and his partner, Brian Thomas, in June 2009 at the Riverbend Bed and Breakfast in Grand Forks, B.C., with owner Susan Molnar.
Minutes later, Eadie said, her husband Les Molnar called back and asked if the couple was gay. When Eadie said they were, Molnar cancelled the booking, saying it was not going to work.
The case is just now being heard and our Daybreak reporter Brady Strachan is there listening.
