Nova Scotia bar owners convicted of racism for calling police on unruly black patron


African immigrant DIno Gilipin refused to leave a bar when he was asked. Bar owners have now been convicted of “racism” for calling the police.

This is not a hoax. This is not satire. This is really happening in Canada! How long until this takes place in the USA? Send this story to everyone you know. Facebook share, tweet, and everthing else this post. This is a warning of what is coming for America!

The owners of a bar have been formerly convicted of “racism” for calling the police on a black person, even if the police themselves though the call was justified. They are back in court to face punishment.

Dino Gilpin, a black immigrant, was asked to leave a Halifax bar because he did not have a valid picture ID. When he refused to leave and made a scene, the bar called police.

Bar owners say they are under heavy pressure from the Alcohol and Gaming Division to keep people out of the bar who do not have valid ID.

Now the owners of the bar have been charged with thought crimes. They are being drug before the Soviet inspired Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission to face punishment.

Police charged Dino Gilpin with public intoxication. The charge was later dismissed.

The Nova Scotia thought crimes court has ruled that the owners of bar were “racist,” for calling the police. The official declaration of “racism” was apparently made last July. However, bar owners are back at court to face their punishment.

So, in Canada, it is now literally illegal for a business to call the police on a black customer who is causing trouble and refusing to leave.

From Canada Post…

For refusing to serve a man carrying what it deemed to be improper I.D. — and then calling the police when he refused to leave — a Halifax bar is now awaiting punishment for what the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission deemed to be a discriminatory act of “imposing the police” on a customer “because of his colour.”

The bar, the Halifax Alehouse, maintains that it had no racial malice in kicking out Sierra Leone immigrant Dino Gilpin; they were simply fulfilling the strict requirements of Nova Scotia’s Alcohol and Gaming Division.

“Our motto is ‘if in doubt, keep them out,’” Alehouse general manager Peter Martell said in a letter filed before the commission. “We are heavily scrutinized by the [Alcohol and Gaming Division] and follow their guidelines.”

The incident occurred on a Saturday night in February, 2010. Mr. Gilpin, then 32, entered the Alehouse, ordered a beer and was immediately “carded” by server Stephanie Lent.

In its final decision rendered in July, the Human Right Commission ultimately ruled that Halifax Alehouse’s denial of Mr. Gilpin’s identification was not necessarily racist, even if it chastised the bar’s current age identification policy for being “aggressive and even arrogant.”

What was racist, though, was the bar’s act of “invoking the force of the state” by summoning police.

Halifax Alehouse was unable to “rebut the presumption of discriminatory behaviour,” read the decision.

“As Maya Angelou has said: … ‘people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel,’” wrote commission board chair Walter Thompson.

“Mr. Gilpin wept as he told his story. He will never forget how the Alehouse made him feel.”

At proceedings, Mr. Gilpin’s lawyer also claimed the episode had triggered his client’s post-traumatic stress disorder.

At a final hearing convened on Tuesday, the parties met to hash out an appropriate “remedy” to the July decision. To be decided by the board chair within the next few weeks, the remedy is expected to have lasting effects not only on the Alehouse but the whole Nova Scotia liquor trade.
