OTTAWA — A Treasury Board employee has told the Canadian Human Rights Commission (CHRC) his union’s anti-heterosexism policy creates a hostile, anti-Catholic work environment.
Dave MacDonald said the Public Service Alliance of Canada’s (PSAC) “zero tolerance policy toward heterosexism” is a “personal affront to my security in the workplace and to my beliefs as a Catholic,” in a written brief to the CHRC filed Dec. 23.
“This policy not only states that there is zero tolerance for behaviours that are determined to be heterosexist, but that there is zero tolerance for holding beliefs determined to be heterosexist,” he argued.
“As a Catholic, faithful to the teaching of the Church, I am by their definition a heterosexist.”
