CALGARY - A Calgary cab driver's licence has been suspended for a month following a complaint of discriminatory behaviour.

It's alleged the driver made derogatory comments to two men.

The incident was reviewed by the city of Calgary's Livery Transport Services, including the review of the cab’s video.

Once the suspension has been served, the driver will appear in front of a licence review hearing panel, which will determine the future status of his licence.

Potential outcomes of the hearing include additional suspension time, training related to diversity sensitivity and human rights, or a revocation of his licence.
