The Canadian Human Rights Tribunal is looking into whether Air Canada, the largest airline in the country, discriminated against an Arab-Canadian man by relying on ‘over-zealous’ United States security lists.

The man, whose identity has not been revealed at this time, was told he would not be able to board his flight from London, ON to Vancouver because he was on the U.S ‘No-Fly List’.

Specifically, the human rights tribunal will be examining whether the reliance on the U.S security lists amounts to a discriminatory practice and whether the airline discriminated on the grounds of race, nationality or ethnic origin.
