A dilly of a human rights pickle in Sydney:
Taxi drivers are regularly refusing to carry blind passengers with guide dogs – including Australia’s Human Rights Commissioner …
[Human Rights and Disability Discrimination Commissioner Graeme] Innes, whose high-powered role makes him a regular cab user, said he was refused service on average once a month, including twice in two days recently.
He has been told on a number of occasions that it would be against a driver’s religion to allow a dog in the cab.
Presbyterians. I bet it’s those damn Presbyterians.
