Jason Anson is a former sports technologist from the village of Youbou on Vancouver Island. He suffers from a permanent and irreversible mental disability.
Anson says provincial social assistance policy for the disabled here discriminates against him solely on the basis of his disability. He has filed a complaint with the Human Rights Tribunal arguing that provincial clawbacks of federal benefits mean he is not treated equally with non-disabled citizens in B.C., nor does he have equality with disabled people in provinces that do not claw back federal income assistance.
