The BCHA and Canadian Secular Alliance have been granted leave to intervene at the BC Court of Appeal in the case of TWU vs Law Society of BC. This means that secular voices will be at the table, arguing for the limits of freedom of religion when it conflicts with the promotion of a more just and equal society.
This is a huge opportunity for our organization and the broader secular movement in Canada to set a strong precedent to define secularism in Canadian law.
The case will be heard from June 1-3, 2016 and the hearings will be open to the public. We'll share the specifics closer to the date.
