It’s a lesson learned.
The owner of a Maple Ridge restaurant is apologizing, after not responding well to complaints from a woman told to cover up while breast feeding.
After setting off a fire storm online, Frogstone Grill owner Todd Pratt says he learned a thing or two about human rights in BC.
Legal protections for breast feeding moms
It turns out, according to BC’s human rights rules, businesses cannot tell women to cover up while nursing.
Brianne McNally took to Facebook earlier this month, after being told to cover up while nursing her baby in his restaurant.
No apology, at first
At first, Pratt wouldn’t apologize, saying there was nothing wrong with telling women to cover up while breast feeding.
He was so adamant, he posted “There’s already one topless bar in town, and council won’t approve another one.”
Now, Pratt admits that comment was inappropriate, and he’s sorry.
He is apologizing to McNally and her family as well.
