MacLean, Livingstone, Delaney and the Disability Rights Coalition of Nova Scotia v. Province of Nova Scotia Remedy Hearing

A remedy hearing for the independent human rights board of inquiry into Beth MacLean, Sheila Livingstone, Joseph Delaney and the Disability Rights Coalition of Nova Scotia v. Province of Nova Scotia will begin in Halifax, Tuesday, Sept 10.

Board chair Walter Thompson published his decision on this matter in March, finding that the province discriminated against the complainants, Beth MacLean, Sheila Livingstone and Joey Delaney in the provision of access to services or facilities on account of mental and physical disability.

This remedy hearing will provide Mr. Thompson the opportunity to determine appropriate remedies with input from the parties.

The hearing will take place at the Best Western Chocolate Lake, 250 Saint Margaret's Bay Rd., Halifax.
