Customer Question
Hello, a motovational speaker...

Hello, a motovational speaker started his presentation with the statement "Your all racist!" and "your all racist and I can prove it!" When I challenged him, he said "Your a racist, your a racist and i can prove it!" He says that asking someone "Where are you from?" is micro aggression and this reminds him that he is not from Vancouver. I felt attacked. I have excellent character. Can I demand a written apology and sue him if he doesn't? I did not ask him where he was from. This was a volunteer orientation, manditory. We were a small group.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Vancouver, canada

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

Volunteer

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No, thank you

I am sorry to hear this.

Are you saying you believe that he told others a lie about you and this harmed your reputation?

Did you get a chance to read my questions to you? I cannot answer you in a meaningful way until I gather the appropriate information. There is no charge for us going up and back of course.

Thanks!
