Breast is Best

In 1994, a woman in Montreal was breastfeeding her 3-month old daughter at a shopping mall when she was told by a security guard that she had to cover up or leave. Humiliated, she took her complaint to the Quebec Human Rights Commission, and in 1996 in a show of solidarity, about 20 women staged a “feed-in” at the mall. Those events inspired Daniel to create a storyline where Patty has a similar experience.
