Autistic girl wins apology over service dog ban

Autistic girl wins apology over service dog ban - Edmonton - CBC News:

A young girl with autism and her mother received an apology from the Winners retail chain for barring the girl's service dog from its west Edmonton store last weekend.

"Honestly I'm so happy today … in light of a really hard week," said Alison Ainsworth.

Ainsworth and her nine-year-old daughter Emily were told by store staff on Sunday that Emily's dog Levi, whose harness identifies him as a service dog, was not allowed in the store.

But on Thursday, the chain assured Ainsworth, Emily and Levi will be welcomed at the store should they return.
