A vegan firefighter has claimed that his human rights were violated when he wasn't given enough suitable food while fighting a huge wildfire in Canada over a 10-day period. 

Adam Knauff, of Ontario, was one of 1,000 firefighters who worked up to 16 hours a day helping to battle a huge forest fire in northern British Columbia back in July 2017. 

The 40-year-old, who filed a complaint on Tuesday with the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario regarding his treatment, was eventually suspended after he blew up at kitchen staff over the lack of vegan food.

Knauff, who had been working as a firefighter with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry since 2008, had been dispatched out of his usual province to help battle the blaze.
