Ontario government and unions being sued by two public servants over racism allegations

The Ontario government is being sued by two public servants who allege they've been subjected to systemic racism for years.

Jean-Marie Dixon and Hentrose Nelson are also suing the unions that represent them.

The pair allege they experienced prolonged anti-black racism that led to harassment and ongoing mistreatment over their careers in the Ontario Public Service.

They are seeking 26-million dollars in damages as well as several changes, including anti-racism training for all staff.
