You and your family did a fantastic job on Dragon's Den! I can't wait for your Snappy Socks to make there way to Ontario.

The one thing I was shocked to hear was the apparent discriminatory comment by Jim Treliving while you were out of the room. In particular, after rejecting to invest in Snappy Socks and while you were out of the room, Jim Treliving stated that his "biggest worry with [you] is that [you'd] get pregnant again and be down for nine months". Unless I misheard him or am missing something, it sounds to me that his comment was clear evidence that he, in contravention of the Ontario Human Rights Code, discriminated against you on the basis of gender/sex as he refused (at least in part) to deal with you as a result of your potential to become pregnant again. What a schmuck.
