Merry Christmas and Shame on Canada


When this story first emerged, I recall thinking that the tenants will never win because Alabi did not do anything that was disrespectful. An entire room is not a prayer space for Muslims. We have a prayer rug which is used for prayers, and I don't recall reading that Alabi violated the prayer rug. So, it came as a rude shock when I read that John Alabi not only lost the case (a $12,000 fine) but now has to pay his accusers legal costs (another $5,000).
