A decision by Saskatoon city councillors to maintain Merry Christmas greeting on city transit buses could prompt a human rights complaint.
Councillors sitting as an executive committee decided Monday to maintain the greeting despite criticism from a city resident.
Ashu Solo, the Saskatoon man who complained in December that the messages were inappropriate and discriminatory, said in a news release that he plans to file a formal complaint with the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission in the wake of the committee’s decision.
Solo is also the author of a separate complaint about religious prayer offered at a volunteer appreciation banquet held in April 2012. The human rights commission said earlier this month that will open a formal investigation into that complaint.
