Muslim prisoner's complaint about treatment in Kamloops jail heads to hearing
by Cam Fortems
A complaint to the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal by an inmate alleging Kamloops prison staff discriminated against him, including a claim that a correctional supervisor called him "a f—ing Muslim terrorist," will move ahead to a hearing.
Tribunal member Emily Ohler ruled against an application by Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre that Andrew Monnette's allegations are without merit and should be dismissed.
"I am not persuaded by KRCC that Mr. Monnette's complaint has no reasonable prospect of success," Ohler wrote in her ruling.
