MacLean, Livingstone, Delaney and Disability Rights Coalition of Nova Scotia v. Province of Nova Scotia


An independent Nova Scotia human rights board of inquiry is being held in the case of Beth MacLean, Sheila Livingstone, Joseph Delaney and the Disability Rights Coalition of Nova Scotia v. Province of Nova Scotia, starting on Monday, Feb. 5, in Halifax.

The complaint to the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission was brought on behalf of some residents living in an institutionalized setting who have mental and/or physical disabilities. They allege that living in this setting is discriminatory and that they should be housed in small options homes instead.

The board will begin with opening arguments on Feb. 5 and continue with the hearing of evidence on Feb.13.

Proceedings will take place at the Chocolate Lake Best Western, 250 St. Margarets Bay Rd.

The board chair is J. Walter Thompson, who is independent of the commission. The commission is not representing either party. It represents the public interest.
