The man who was serving as the head of the Alberta Human Rights Commission is out of a job.
The United Conservative Party government has rescinded Collin May's appointment in a dispute stemming from a passage in a book review that has been criticized as Islamophobic.
Neither Justice Minister Tyler Shandro nor May has commented on the government's decision.
Earlier this week, Shandro publicly urged May to resign after a Muslim advocacy group said May had failed to keep a promise to meet with them over comments in a book review he had written in 2009 that
they deemed Islamophobic.
May refused to resign and instead hired a lawyer who said that May had done nothing wrong.
