Toronto: cabbies allowed to refuse service to those with (non-service) dogs because they are Muslim

Really.  It has now come to this; if you drive a cab in Toronto you can legally deny a fare because of your religious beliefs.


Oh! Canada!

Toronto: Muslim cab drivers allowed to refuse riders with dogs

Here is a prime example of how pandering to Islamic supremacism erodes the freedom and rights of non-Muslims. Blazing Cat Fur has more details and this: "File complaints with the OHRT, contact the GTAA, contact Mayor Ford -, 416-397-FORD (3673), Contact Beck Taxi."

"Pearson airport rules can take the bark out of your trip home," by Sue-Ann Levy in the Toronto Sun, July 15 (thanks to Blazing Cat Fur):

TORONTO - Last Monday morning at 1:30 a.m. I came out of Pearson Airport with my dachsie Kishka in tow looking for a limo to drive us home.

Kishka, as is the requirement whenever I fly to and from my home in Florida, was comfortably zipped up in his soft kennel.

He was half-asleep at that hour — and so hidden away — that the first driver in line headed towards me to start loading my luggage.

It was when he grabbed Kishka’s kennel and realized a dog was in there that he turned around quickly and waved me away.

The second driver, also a visible minority, said “No” the moment I approached him.

The second driver — who works for McIntosh Limousine — refused to give me a reason for refusing me or his name.

Thankfully, a third driver eventually pulled up. He had no issue transporting Kishka, who promptly fell asleep in his kennel the moment we hit the highway....

What I realized is that this occurs quite often not only at the airport but in Toronto proper and is happening due to religious reasons — that is, because dogs are considered unclean in certain religions.

Only within Islam are they unclean.

In fact, Gail Beck-Souter, general manager of Beck Taxi that operates about 900 cars in Toronto, confirms that if certain Muslims take a dog in their vehicle, they are required to go home and shower afterwards (before they pray).

Yes, that is proper procedure after touching or being near a dog.  The act of washing before prayer is called wu'du.

It would seem that the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) which licenses limos that pick up at Pearson airport and the companies that operate out of the airport have bent over backwards to accommodate the religious demands of their drivers — who clearly have strength in numbers.

McIntosh Limousine manager Anne Ruddy claimed the driver who turned me down, a gentleman from India, did so because he “doesn’t have to” take dogs.

And I don't have to like an Indian cab driver turn down a female passenger at 1:30AM with a dog.

But the driver would have to take Kishka if he was a service dog — that’s the “law,” she said.

She denied Muslim drivers in their fleet would ever turn down dogs for religious reasons contending it has more to do with “them being scared” of dogs.

Liar.  Muslims are required to keep dogs away, and even though they may be "scared" of dogs it is for strictly religious reasons that they deny passengers with pooches.

Read it all, and contact, and politely register your complaint.

No, It is not fair with Muslims. All people should be treated equal. Muslims are also nation of God and respectable nation.
