HRTO dismisses human rights complaint against TMU

The Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario (HRTO) has dismissed a human rights complaint that alleged that Toronto Metropolitan University and its law school discriminated against former law student Ish Aderonmu. The Toronto Star reports that Aderonmu alleged racial discrimination because the university provided him with little financial support despite repeated requests for assistance. The HRTO dismissed the application because it did not fall within the Tribunal’s jurisdiction, and said that Aderonmu “failed to provide a factual basis beyond a bald assertion.” TMU is reportedly still facing a lawsuit filed by Aderonmu alleging that the university appropriated his personality.
