    Reasonable accomendation - Canadian style

    The strange legal ramifications that accompany "reasonable accomendation" have spilled over into Canada.

    A McDonalds restaurant worker was found to have the "right" to not wash her hands before handling food.

    The restaurant worker had a skin condition. Her own doctor said she couldn't work in a restaurant with the condition. Canada's legal system ruled that McDonald's still had to accommodate her disability -- and found there was no correlation between hand-washing and the prevention of spreading germs.

    She was awarded $55,000 by the court.

    Crap. I mean, just crap! This is George Orwell's "1984", all over again.

    Alice in Wonderland, meet Canada.
