French waiter says firing for rudeness is 'discrimination'

Postby seamas o dalaigh » Mon Mar 26, 2018 7:11 pm

A French waiter fired for being “aggressive, rude and disrespectful” says his behaviour wasn’t out of line – he’s just French.

Guillaume Rey, who worked at a Vancouver restaurant on Canada’s Pacific coast, filed a complaint with British Columbia’s Human Rights Tribunal against his former employer, claiming “discrimination against my culture”.

It seems to me that the national ethos in Canada is that anyone can be compelled to assist anyone in any way demanded to do anything, regardless of how abhorrent; and if protested charge them with a hate crime. Why should the waiter's employer be treated any differently than medical personnel who refuse to participate in abortions or suicides, or those who's religious convictions compel them to protest such impositions?

I think the intended humour of the report is the subtext:

"Of course I'm rude, I'm French."
