A Metro transit employee known as YZ won his discrimination case at a Human Rights Commission inquiry and is now suing the city for more than a million dollars. He is a white man married to an African Nova Scotian, and he says his supervisor, Arthur Maddox harassed him because of that. YZ also says the harrasment got worse when he became friends with Randy Symonds, a co-worker who was black, and who he says also faced discrimination. Arthur Maddox was fired from Metro Transit in 2001 but got his job back the next year. Now, the Symonds family is speaking out about the incidents they've only recently learned about. The CBC's Elizabeth Chiu spoke with Ranyd's widow, Marie Symonds, and his 18 year old daughter, Carol.
