TORONTO, December 3, 2001 (LSN.ca) – Toronto printer Scott Brockie – a Christian who has been waging an ongoing court battle against an Ontario Human Rights Commission ruling that found him guilty of “discrimination” for refusing to print materials for a gay and lesbian organization is getting his case heard in court this week.
