Emily Stuart is a third-year student at the University of Nanaimo who claims she suffers from "visual allergies." She is currently in a legal battle with her school because of their failure to provide visual allergy friendly "zones" like they do for people who suffer from food or scent allergies. According to Ms. Stuart and her legal team, these spaces would prohibited the presence of patterns, tall people, the colour mauve, and other sights that cause her to have allergic reactions.
Peter Oldring spent the day with Emily learning more about her condition.
We want to know what you think: Should the University of Nanaimo be more sensitive to Emily's condition?
