AUDIO – DESCRIPTION:
On October 24 and 25, 1996, Ontario’s Divisional Court heard the Ontario Human Rights Commission’s appeal of the August 24, 1994 decision of Board of Inquiry Chair Ajit S. John in the matter of Chippheng Hom and Ontario Human Rights Commission v. Elijah Elieff and Elieff Investments Ltd. (Decision # 94-022). The Board of Inquiry Chair had found the Elieff had not violated Hom’s rights to equal treatment under Ontario’s Human Rights Code. Jim Chapman, host of CJBK 1290 AM (London, Ontario’s) Talk of the Town Program had apparently mentioned a report in the London Free Press from that day concerning the Divisional Court’s hearings the previous day. Freedom Party of Ontario president Robert Metz had represented Elieff and his company at the Board of Inquiry hearing, and he called in to discuss the appeal.
