Do you remember John Alabi, the Christian landlord who was sued by his Muslim tenants for not taking off his shoes?
Of course, they didn’t sue him in a real court. They took him to a kangaroo court — the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario.
They claimed that by not taking off his shoes, John violated their human rights as Muslims.
If that sounds like a joke or a scam or a con, well you don’t know these kangaroo courts. They agreed with the Muslim tenants and hit John with a massive, $12,000 fine.
We offered to help John pay his fine — but then our viewers came up with a better idea: let’s crowdfund the money to appeal the case, not to submit! So John appealed.
But unfortunately, he lost — the three-judge panel didn’t say that the Human Rights Tribunal made the “right” decision. They just said that they followed their own procedures. And so the ruling stands.
So not only does John owe the Muslim family $12,000 for wearing his shoes in their “holy apartment", we need to pay the legal costs now, too.
But I promised John that we’d help him, and I want to keep my promise. Can you please help me, help John?
Let’s pay John’s legal bill — his lawyer fought hard.
If we can cover the costs for John, I think he might fight on.
What do you think?
- Let’s pay off the bills John’s incurred so far.
- Let’s show him that people believe in him, and support him, especially during these trying personal times.
- And if we raise enough money, let’s tell him that we’ll help him fight some more.
A great injustice has been done to John; he has suffered three times — first at the hands of his litigious Muslim tenants; second, through the personal crises this “human rights” complaint has had on him; and now, the stress and cost of litigation.
No-one should have to go through that — which is exactly why we should help him lift his burden.
