A Canadian student denied an exchange to Victoria University because of her mental illness has laid a complaint with the Human Rights Commission. In RNZ reported on Kristin Legault who would have - all going to plan - been studying in New Zealand now. But she had her offer of study revoked after disclosing to the tertiary institute that she had bipolar disorder. As Emma Hatton reports, she's not taking the decision lying down.
