Todd is a single father with two sons, who were ages 5 and 8 at the time. On August 31, 2017, Todd posted an ad on Kijiji looking for a babysitter for an evening. One of those who responded to the ad was the Complainant, James Cyrynowski. Todd replied to Mr. Cyrynowski asking some basic questions about Mr. Cyrynowski, including what town he lived in, what his age was and whether he was male or female. Mr. Cyrynowski answered these questions.

However, Todd's evening plans fell through, and so he cancelled his plans to hire a sitter. Todd didn't contact Cyrynowski further. Mr. Cyrynowski did not follow up with Todd either.

The Justice Center is representing Todd pro bono in this case, and has learned that Todd is one of many parents who, after they did not hire Mr. Cyrynowski as a babysitter, were subsequently subject to Human Rights Complaints... Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
