Unacceptable attitude - Re : Human rights tribunal decision concerning an
obese co-owner and a parking spot

MONTREAL, Feb. 12 /CNW Telbec/ - The Québec association of syndicates of co-ownership (ASCQ) deplores the unacceptable attitude of the Québec Human Rights Commission (HRC) who parades - we should say: triumph - about a decision of the human rights tribunal concerning a parking spot and a co-owner who is obese. Case is Quebec Human Rights Commission and Myrand v. Condominium Ste Marie.

"The Commission should be ashamed of itself; delays to appeal are not even expired" said Michel G Charlebois, president of ASCQ. "HRC, heavily subsidized with our taxes, seems to look at this decision as a trophy. HRC should be more modest as we consider the decision biased, containing many errors of law and offensive, not to say abusive, for the rights of the 35 other co-owners of this syndicate." concluded Charlebois.

ASCQ law department is studying the case closely. According to ASCQ lawyers some parts of the decision go against actual jurisprudence especially concerning the liability of a syndicate of co-ownership and each and all of its co-owners. The decision to appeal belongs to the co-owner but ASCQ offers this syndicate its support, monetary and research, if it decides to appeal.
