A fitness club owner in southwestern Ontario said Tuesday he has wasted tens of thousands of dollars fighting a legal battle with a transgender woman over which washrooms she should use, only to have the case thrown out by the Ontario Human Rights Commission.
“I have been a proud supporter of gay, lesbian and transgender issued for the past decade in St. Catharines,” he said. “They’re picking on the wrong guy. The OHRC (rights commission) needs to be rejigged . . . before other people end up being in a situation where they feel like they’re being extorted.”
