6:52 P.M. Toronto Restaurant Ordered To Pay $10,000.00 …

A Toronto restaurant has been forced to pay CAD$10,000 ( $7,777.00 ) in compensation to a black customer after it forced him and three companions , who were also black , to pay for their meals in advance. The Ontario Human Rights Tribunal found that Hong Shing Chinese Restaurant , a popular eatery just east of Toronto’s Chinatown , violated the Canadian province’s human rights code when its staff treated Emile Wickham , now 31 , as a ‘ potential thief in waiting ‘ a ruling published by the Canadian Legal Information Instititute (CanLII) states …

Wickham , who was born in Trinidad and Tobago and immigrated to Canada 11 years ago , had visited Hong Shing in May 2014 to celebrate his birthday with friends , according to the ruling. He was surprised , however , when he and his friends were asked to pay for their meals in advance shortly after placing their order. The group asked the server why they were being asked to pre-pay for food , but obliged after being told it was restaurant policy …

Wickham questioned whether his group had been targeted by restaurant staff because they were black and decided to poll other customers on whether they had also been asked to pay for their meals in advance. The answer was no , the Toronto man testified at an April tribunal hearing … When a server returned to to Wickham’s table , he and his friends questioned them once again about the restaurant’s policies and the server eventually admitted that their group had been the only table forced to prepay …

Joined by another staff member , the server offered Wickham’s group a refund , which they accepted before leaving the restaurant …

This just reinforces my conviction that the multitude of ‘ racism ‘ in this country is from the various ‘ cultures ‘ around the world that flock here still holding dear their demented ideas about other ‘ cultures ‘ that aren’t their own … Unlike REAL Canadians …

You’ve Indians here that look down on Pakistanis and vice versa … You’ve got Turks and Greeks still bitchin’ at one another and on and on … You want to live here and make a new life ” …

THEN LOSE ALL THE BULLSHIT YOUR PARENTS HAVE FED YA AND BECOME A CANADIAN !!! …

I’m happy to see this judge saw it for what it was a charged the Hong Shingers !!! … Emile looks like a decent working individual and I agree with his effort to make his point …
