Man claims service refused because he's English
Another Montreal commuter is claiming he wasn't served because he speaks English.
55 year old Michael Dunning from Vaudreuil, says Monday afternoon around 3, he asked two ticket takers at the Atwater metro station if he could buy a day pass. He says the answer he got back infuriated him.
"The two people there, refused to serve me in English, they refused to serve me period and said get the $%$@# out of here."
Dunning who is visually impaired but was not using his white cane at the time, was forced to walk to another ticket window to buy his pass.
He's filed a complaint with the MTC, demanding an apology and compensation. Montreal transit officials have now opened an investigation.
