TORONTO (Aug. 2)
The Canadian Jewish Congress Central Region has submitted a complaint under the Human Rights Code against the Maclean Hunter Publishing Company of Toronto and the Robert Matthew, Johnson-Marshall and Partner of London.
The complaint cited a display advertisement in the June edition of “Construction Today, Middle East,” asking for “MUSLIM” surveyors, engineers and other professionals and technicians. The word Muslim was capitalized in the advertisement. The CJC complaint stated that this was a clear violation of the Ontario Human Rights Code. The Maclean Hunter Publishing Company is a large firm which publishes numerous trade journals and Macleans Magazine. The firm also owns radio stations and has a distributing franchise for other periodicals.
