I agree, but given that in this case her mother has taken the case to the Human Rights Tribunal, can you blame the MHA for wondering what her reaction is going to be the first time her daughter mentions that somebody made an off-color comment?
(Incidentally, has anybody here been in the Lumby arena recently? My recollection of it from the early 80's is that it was pretty well-appointed for a small-town rink - big dressing rooms, and several of them. That makes me wonder why they were sticking her in boiler rooms and storage spaces to change, but maybe I'm confusing it with someplace else.)
