HRM to face human rights hearing?

A decision will be made in October as to whether a discrimination complaint against the Halifax Regional Municipality will go to a hearing.

Lynn Connors, the chair of the independent board that heard Comeau’s arguments yesterday, said parties should prepare for a November hearing.
