A graduate from Trinity Western University says that a hiring manager for Canada’s North for Amaruk Wilderness Corp. informed her that her application for an internship at the company was rejected because of her Christian beliefs and education at a Christian university.
In her complaint to the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal, Bethany Paquette provided a series of discriminatory emails from executives at Amaruk.One of the emails was from hiring manager Olaf Amundsen, who told Paquette that she did not meet the minimum requirements to be a guide. He then callously added:
Additionally, considering you were involved with Trinity Western University, I should mention that, unlike Trinity Western University, we embrace diversity, and the right of people to sleep with or marry whoever they want.
Amundsen explained to Paquette that most of “the guys at the management level” in the Norwegian-owned company believe Christianity is to blame for destroying Norse culture, traditions, and its way of life.
Frankly, I think employers should have a right to employ whomever they want and sell to whomever want. But why would anyone want to work for a bunch of douchebags likes that?
