A grown, 28-year old Alberta man has filed a human rights complaint against a single father of two after not getting hired for a babysitting job.

The father asked James Cyrynowski, the man who applied for the babysitting job on Kijiji, for his sex and age. When Cyrynowski replied and never heard back, he lodged a discrimination complaint with the Alberta Human Rights Commission.

True North’s Andrew Lawton talks about how the human rights industry has gotten out of hand.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
