Join us on Thursday, December 10 for a Human Rights Day Webinar about “The Forgotten Freedoms”.
This session will provide an overview of emerging research and ground-breaking scholarship on the “Forgotten Fundamental Freedoms” – protections in section 2 of the Charter which have been overlooked or unexamined in Canadian jurisprudence to date, such as freedom of thought, belief, opinion, the press, conscience, peaceful assembly, and religious association. How should these freedoms be interpreted and applied? What relevance might they have in future cases? This session will also summarize the brand new publication “The Forgotten Fundamental Freedoms of the Charter” on these topics.
