Is it a case of human rights? Or is it a case of ‘if they don’t have what you want go somewhere else’?
A father in Vancouver is suing a restaurant because it failed to supply his one-year-old with a high chair. Earls Kitchen & Bar in Vancouver is facing a human rights hearing as a result of Phillip Ryan crying foul and saying his toddler was discriminated against. Reportedly, two different locations of this chain “declined” to provide a high chair, but rather, suggested Ryan either hold his child on his lap or seat the toddler beside him. But dad didn’t want to dine with his baby in his lap, noting that it would be “stressful” and “less enjoyable.”
I remember going to a breakfast buffet when my oldest was a year old and they didn’t have a high chair so we left. I ended up buying one of those strap on plastic seats with a tray so wherever we went she had a place she could sit up and eat. It never even crossed my mind to sue the restaurant but I guess it’s his right.
