Graeme McCreath, a blind man from Victoria who has spent the past three years fighting to gain retribution in a case of perceived discrimination by a local taxi company, has lost his final appeal at the Supreme Court of Canada.
A Supreme Court decision listed Thursday stated that McCreath’s application for leave to appeal a B.C. Court of Appeal decision from October 2017, in his case against Victoria Taxi and the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal, has been dismissed without costs.
The original incident happened four years ago, when McCreath and his guide dog were refused transport by a Victoria Taxi driver who said he could not allow dogs in his vehicle due to his allergies. Another cab was called for McCreath that arrived in minutes.
Both the B.C. Supreme Court and the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal rejected his subsequent complaint.
