Is there discrimination for a greater use of goods and services such as laundry?

Ontario, Canada


The following excerpt is from Brushett v. J.M.G. Consulting Inc., 2013 HRTO 838 (CanLII):

It is not substantive discrimination for there to be greater costs for greater use of goods and services. Larger families may need to do more laundry, at a higher cost, but that is not discrimination. It is also not discrimination for people in receipt of public assistance to have to pay for laundry services. See: Harrington v. Hamilton (City), 2010 HRTO 2395.
