Breastfeeding mom needs support!

In this crazy world we live in, even those of us who feel secure in our rights as breastfeeding moms (ie us Canadians!) get them trampled on from time to time. This time it happened in Scarborough which is in Ontario where, ironically, for those of you who are not aware, it is legal for women to be topless where a man is allowed to be topless. So, to set the stage, our breastfeeding mom is at a swimming pool (men allowed to be topless there? Check!) in a YMCA (family friendly facility? Check!) where she is minding her own business and nursing her younger child while watching her older kids take swimming lessons when a not so savvy Y staffer comes over to ask our mom to move! Our smart mom knows her rights and stands (err, sits?) her ground but the staffers continue to be obstinate and harass her. After getting nowhere with the Y, she has now filed a Human Rights Complaint and is getting media attention like this great article. She'll be on CTV today at noon and again at 6pm. We're behind you Carolyn!
