A blind man, Glen Murphy, had arranged to have a cab pick him up from a medical appointment. When Bakhshi saw the guide dog, he refused to let them in his cab. From CBC, Edmonton
Both Canada and the United States have strict laws that permit guide dogs to go any place humans are allowed to go. The problem is that some communities don’t enforce these laws and blind people who are barred from restaurants and other buildings are often reluctant to press charges.
Let’s hope that fines, loss of income and bad publicity will set an example for other people who might try to ban guide dogs from accompanying blind people to places where they have a legal right to go.
