An independent Nova Scotia human rights board of inquiry in the case of Jennifer Smith and Javonna Borden v. Bob’s Taxi Limited and/or Aleksey Osipenkov is scheduled to continue Thursday, Dec. 4.
Ms. Smith and Ms. Borden allege that Bob’s Taxi Limited and/or Mr. Osipenkov, discriminated against Ms. Smith’s two children and Ms. Borden because of their race and/or colour by refusing to provide them with service. Bob’s Taxi and Mr. Osipenkov deny any discrimination occurred.
The board of inquiry is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m., in the Nantucket Room at Dartmouth Sportsplex, 110 Wyse Rd. The board chair, Dennis James, is independent of the commission, which is representing the public interest at the inquiry.
