Downey v. Halifax Regional Water Commission Hearing to Begin Oct. 29

An independent Nova Scotia human rights board of inquiry in the case of Graham Downey v. Halifax Regional Water Commission is scheduled to begin Oct. 29, with preliminary matters.

Mr. Downey alleges his employers, HRM and then Halifax Regional Water Commission, retaliated against him because of a previous complaint he filed with the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission, as well as any ongoing allegations. The water commission denies any allegations of discrimination and alleges Mr. Downey’s complaint should be dismissed for being filed after the required one-year period.

The board of inquiry is scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. in the Seminar Room, Nova Scotia Art Gallery, 1723 Hollis St., Halifax, to deal with preliminary matters raised by counsel for the water commission. The board chair, Walter Thompson, is independent of the commission, which is representing the public interest at the board of inquiry.
