Webber Academy ordered to pay damages to 2 Muslim students over denying prayer at school
A Calgary private school that refused to allow two Muslim students to pray on campus grounds has been fined $26,000 by the Alberta Human Rights Commission.
The tribunal found Webber Academy discriminated against the 14-year-olds and caused them distress and loss of dignity.
The two students testified they had to try to do their daily prayers in secret, sometimes outside in the snow.
