SCOC sides with radio host in Montreal cabbie fight

Hurt feelings no doubt. But, says the SCOC in a 6-1 decision, no inuury was done by Andre Arthur's opinion about Arab and Haitian taxi drivers in Montreal. In his 1998 remarks on CKVL-FM, Arthur said Arab and Haitian drivers were incompetent, that their cabs were dirty and that they obtained their licences by bribery.
