A former navy officer who says he was subjected to harassment because he is openly gay will get another day in court on Tuesday.
Retired Sub-Lieutenant Paul Ritchie was to appear before the Federal Court of Appeal in Halifax.
He wants a judicial review of a Canadian Human Rights Commission decision that dismissed his claim of sexual discrimination.
The military has admitted that Ritchie was at times treated differently as he studied at the Naval Engineering School in Halifax.
However, a Commission investigator concluded that even in cases where Ritchie was treated differently, there was no conclusive evidence that it was due to his sexual preference.
Ritchie alleges he was called “faggot” by a commanding officer and harassed until he quit the military.
Documents filed with the court describe a complex legal fight dating back to 2009, the year after he enrolled to become a naval combat systems engineer in the Royal Canadian Navy.
