Mall denies claims of child discrimination

The incident happened last Thursday at Rogers Plaza on 28th Street near Clyde Park Avenue.

Claire Dykstra, 2, was with her grandpa and physical therapist working on her walking, something she struggles with due to issues with the development of her brain.
