Activist Jill Andrew is meeting with the Ontario Human Rights Commissioner in a few days to ask that they make it illegal to discriminate against a person due to their weight, size or body shape.

She wants doctors to stop “fat-shaming” their patients, suggesting that a medical expert should no longer recommend that a patient lose weight in order to improve their lifestyle.
