From Tasha Kheiriddin at the National Post:
A family has just been awarded $17,000 in damages because a lunch monitor tried to instruct their then-seven-year-old son to eat with a knife and fork, instead of with a fork and spoon (the traditional Filipino way of eating). Human rights lawyer Pearl Eliadis said the ruling should be a lesson to schools and public service providers that they need to treat people in a way that is respectful of where they come from.
BTW Chinese restaurants across the land beware. If I come in and I find a couple of sticks on the table instead of a fork you are going to be paying dearly for that little oversight. I demand respect, I demand a fork!
What a great land we live in where I don't have to respect your traditions when I walk into the door of your restaurant and want to eat your traditional food and can potentially get $1000's of dollars from you to do it.
We are doomed. Fire them all now.
