1909 Taverne Moderne Subject of Discrimination Allegations


MONTREAL — Three former servers at Montreal’s 1909 Taverne Moderne have filed complaints with Quebec’s human rights commission alleging racial discrimination, reports CBC News.

The three, who are all of visible minorities, claim they were fired without clear explanation or prior complaint. Each of the fired servers also noted that when they sought an explanation from the manager who let them go (the same in all three cases), two white, francophone employees were referenced as model employees.

The restaurant, which is a joint venture between The Montreal Canadiens and Cara Operations Limited, has indicated that it will launch a third-party investigation of the dismissals.
