A Toronto barbershop has found itself at the centre of a human rights complaint after its barbers refused to cut a woman's hair.
Faith McGregor, 35, went to the Terminal Barber Shop on Bay Street, back in June looking for a haircut.
But she was turned away.
The barbers, who are all Muslim, told her their religion didn't allow them to cut the hair of a woman who is not a member of their family.
McGregor filed a human rights complaint.

“How come you’re letting that Indian get behind you with a cutting tool?”
Not me. They're wasting my money. It costs nothing to file this complaint; the taxpayers pick up the bill.
Personally, I think this kind of human rights complaint should be settled by a cage-match food fight. Halal optional, of course.
The multicult chickens are coming home to roost.
The problem is that THE GOVERNMENT HAS FORCED OTHER BUSINESSES AND ENTITIES to cater to gays or other groups when they are personally or religiously against it, OR JUST DONT FEEL LIKE IT
I foresee that they are going to allow them to refuse because males/females are not part of an oppressed minority preferred class, but gays are
That would require humans.
I demand that a muslim gives me my first ever shave with a straight razor or I’m suing!
Wait..... every customer at the shop is a member of their family?
How do run a business where every customer must be a family member??
This will go nowhere!
I’m on the side of the Muslims here. Their barbershop. Their business.
By cutting men's hair. It's a barber shop, after all. Islam doesn't forbid Muslim men from touching other men, only women who are not close relations. (And vice versa.)
Except it’s not their money. I would not want to spend more than it costs for a few gallons of petrol to douse them with and be rid of the lot, all 3 sides as you point out.
It will at least define who wins on the liberal hierarchy of victimhood scale in Canada, Muslims or women. I suspect you are correct and the Muslims will be higher on the scale.
I guarantee, that somehow, someway, this was planned to or will be turned to a way to harm Christians.
She’s at risk of them giving her lice via the comb or a disease from a rusty blade run against the scalp. It would be better to sue them for discrimination to put them out of business, but not to use them.
Let me guess she could not find a Christian business to accuse of discriminating against her for being gay so this was the next target of choice.
Yeah, I am just guessing on the gay thing.
What if this was an Orthodox Jewish business.
This is a religious freedom issue and a Muslim business should no more be compelled to act against their beliefs about the propriety of cutting the hair of an unrelated female than a Catholic business owner should have to pay for contraceptive coverage in an insurance plan.
Dumb! Why bother doing a public business? In reality the muslim barbers are practicing sexual discrimination spiced with religious discrimination. Frankly, these Muslim haters(barbers) should only be cutting men’s hair & trimming beards. The other reality muslims because of islam are full of intolerance.
Quite a stretch . . . haircuts and religious freedom
Not a stretch at all. It is for religious reasons they can not cut a woman’s hair. If I don’t stop being Catholic because I have business they should not have to stop being Muslim because they have a business.
Oh I was right about the gay thing. She is a lesbian.
