Windsor restaurant threatened with human rights action after mask dispute at takeout window


After refusing food to a customer who wouldn’t wear a mask at a walk-up takeout window, a local Thai restaurant was given an ultimatum: pay $20,000 or be taken to a human rights tribunal. Thai Palace received a hand-delivered letter Friday from Antoine d’Ailly Law Office, which states a claim of discrimination will be filed against the restaurant for violating the Ontario Human Rights Code. The letter demands that the owner hand over any and all video footage of the incident, which it says occurred on Oct. 7. It also says the restaurant can settle the issue and avoid “the necessity of a formal process” by paying $20,000.
