Vancouver Sunday Meeting: Ian Bushfield - Religion and Canada's courts

The Supreme Court of Canada ruled that law societies in British Columbia and Ontario could reject a proposed law school at Trinity Western University. An Ontario court ruled that restrictions on charities' political activities are an unconstitutional restriction on freedom of expression. A BC judge sentenced two men to house arrest for polygamy. The Supreme Court of Canada also ruled that courts cannot review the excommunication of a church member.

Ian Bushfield, Executive Director of the BC Humanist Association will explore what these latest rulings mean for the state of secularism in Canada and where the next battlelines are likely to be.

All are welcome to attend. Join us at 10 am for BYO coffee, tea, and socializing. At 10:30 am we start our presentation and discuss topics of interest to our members.

The BC Humanist Association was formed in 1984 and we have a regular attendance of over 30 people at our Sunday meetings.
