Downtown ambassadors under scrutiny in hearing

June 2nd, 2010 · 9 Comments

The Sun has been covering the B.C. human-rights tribunal hearing this week on allegations of discrimination by Vancouver’s downtown ambassadors. There’s been a lot of commentary on this blog about ambassadors and security guards (sometimes erroneously seen as one and the same), so I thought you’d be interested in this if you haven’t already seen it. I should point out that the coverage so far has come from people brought forward by Pivot Legal (someone who ‘went undercover’ with the ambassadors and then testified about his experience earlier this week; today, a UBC expert). The testimony from the ambassadors or the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association, which hires them, is presumably yet to come.
