Law Courts Edmonton, Court of Queen’s Bench,
Seniors (age) is not included under the Alberta Human
Rights Legislation Sections 4 & 5
Therefore: An Originating Application
has been filed at the Alberta Court and served upon the
Office of the Attorney General of Alberta
We are seeking an Order pursuant to s.52 (1) of the Constitution
(a) Reading in the word “age” as a prohibited ground of
discrimination in s.4 of the AHRA
(b) Reading in the word “age” as a prohibited ground of
discrimination in s.5 of the AHRA
and such further and other relief a counsel may advise & the
Honourable Court may permit.
Basis for this claim:
1. Section 4 of the Alberta Human Rights Act ,R.S.A. 2000,
c.A-25.5 (the AHRA), violates s.15 of the Canadian Charter
of Rights and Freedoms (the Charter).
2. Section 5 of the AHRA violates s.15 of the Charter in
that it deprives senior citizens of their right to equal
protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination.
