And a great interview with a lactivist about the situation here: http://atlantic.ctv.ca/?video=705159

 

Note: there is also a poll on the page with the interview. Right now less than 1/3 of the votes state that NIP however the mother and child feel comfortable is acceptable. Feel free to help out the "NIP is normal" vote!

I didn't see the poll, but it doesn't matter. Her right to nurse uncovered in public is covered by the New Brunswick human rights code, and her manager was out of line--legally. She can just continue as normal, and if he gives her more trouble, she can complain about harassement to the provincial human rights council.

 

Nurse-ins are fun! But one isn't really needed here, exactly. She's already won the battle. Although clearly attitudes need to be changed.
