Can the owners file a counter-complaint against the woman for not respecting their religious customs?

I went into a dog groomers the other day and asked to have my nails trimmed, they told me they only did dogs. Guess I should whip out a lawsuit, I feel discriminated against.

Ok, but at what point should religion be curbed within a business. Aren't we talking about a city that wouldn't allow cabbies to have religious items within view inside their vehicles?

Denying someone from a service you provide to the public because of your religious beliefs is crazy. This madness needs to end and soon!

Why is a man opening a barber shop when he can't cut womens hair?

We should all complain about women-only gyms...but that's already been tried and failed.

Vancouver-area man loses human rights case against female-only gym

A Burnaby man who complained he was discriminated against when a female-only gym refused to let him join has lost his case before the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal. In a written decision released yesterday, tribunal member Judy Parrack said women should have the option of working out in a space "free of the male gaze" and that men have many co-ed gyms to choose from instead. But Ms. Parrack said the main reason she was dismissing the case by Gordon Stopps, pictured, against Just Ladies Fitness was that she thinks Mr. Stopps never really wanted to join the gym in the first place. "He wanted to make a point," she wrote...

I am ALL for people moving here, but these 3rd world views MUST be left in their home countries. No disrespect, but there is a reason you left the country you were born.

This is like those Vietnamese born people petitioning to keep a hospice out of their area, because their culture says 'it's bad luck to have sick people near them'.

Her name is Faith and she didn't get a haircut because of religious beliefs, part of me finds that absolutely hilarious. Probably because it's almost 2am, but still. Lmao.

been to lots of barber shops that seem to cater only to men and never seen a woman at these places unless it was the stylist or a mom etc,

BTW, I hope the shop fails as it seems to me that they only hire male Muslim (fundamentalist?) barbers.
