Whelton Hiutin Acting on Equality Rights Charter Challenge to Drivers’ Licenses Regulation

Whelton Hiutin LLP lawyers Neil Wilson and Yolanda Song are acting on a constitutional challenge to sections of Ontario’s Drivers’ Licenses regulation barring monocular (one-eyed) drivers from being considered for a commercial driver’s license.  The case, Di Cienzo v. Ontario, challenges the law on the basis that the exclusion of monocular drivers violates the right to equality guaranteed by s. 15 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms by discriminating on the basis of disability.  The case is scheduled to be heard in March 2020.  A copy of the applicant’s factum can be found here.
