A restaurant in White Rock  BC was not allowed to open a new location in Vancouver due to its offensive name “Moby Dick.”


The Vancouver business is suing its strata block for refusing to allow them to open their restaurant, due to their signage.


According to a lawsuit in the BC supreme court, the L&H Trading Corp. leased the commercial property in Vancouver’s coral harbor. It was once an Asian fusion restaurant. Just before they were able to take over the property the strata council  refused for them to open for a number of reasons one of them being the name had the word “dick” in it.

Moby Dick proposed sign changes and renovations, but the strata turned down everything that resembled the stores original logo. Plaintiffs say the ongoing back and forth was resulted in unnecessary delays and cost them potential rental income.
