The CCF's 2015 Law and Freedom Conference
Please join us for some lively debate and discussion about the most important issues in Canadian constitutional law today — and how they impact human freedom. Early-bird and student tickets are still available
"...we already know where the Supreme Court stands on the “security of the person” issue. And it isn’t with the government."
"That’s a sad statement: The idea that if a piece of legislation is populist enough, and challenging it poses enough obstacles, we’ll all just get used to it and go on about our business, even if it does violate our constitutional rights."
The presumption of innocence is an absolutely fundamental procedural protection and a hallmark of Western law. It can not be overstated how important it is to protect this right. This is why the CCF is intervening in Guindon v. The Queen.
"Who would ever imagine that failing to fill out some forms could result in a jail sentence of 18 months, an order preventing you from earning your living, and a fine of $116,000?"
"The court has upheld the forfeiture of the Montagues’ property. Their life’s savings are gone. Apparently, there is no leniency for those engaged in peaceful acts of civil disobedience."
"...racial purity is a corrosive and debasing focus for any group of human beings to choose to champion and rally around."
