The BC HRT case is Ismail v. British Columbia (Human Rights Tribunal), 2013 BCSC 1079.

The complainant alleged that the comments, directed at her and her companion, aggravated her “pre-existing condition of generalized anxiety disorder with panic attacks, and caused her PTSD.”

We have to assume he didn't actually intend to injure her.

One irony of it is that one can make a strong argument that had the comic "only" been negligent in conduct, her claim would have failed because her injury wasn't legally foreseeable. (Mustapha v. Culligan of Canada Ltd., 2008 SCC 27, [2008] 2 SCR 114. So much for sticks and stones.

Anyway, I suspect this one is headed for the BCCA where there will be some formidable intervenors.
