It's still unconstitutional: Municipal councils still opening with a prayer

It's still unconstitutional poster

Despite a 2015 Supreme Court of Canada ruling that prayers at municipal council meetings are unconstitutional, multiple communities across British Columbia still opened their 2022 inaugural council meetings with a prayer.

Join us for a discussion about prayers with BCHA Research Coordinator Dr Teale Phelps Bondaroff where he'll explore our latest work updating the status of prayers at BC municipalities. We've made incredible progress in ensuring compliance since 2018 but there are still a number of stragglers that we will continue to challenge.

The Roundhouse Community Centre is conveniently located near the Yaletown-Roundhouse Station on the Canada Line and has limited pay parking. Find us in the Arts and Crafts Room.
