Challenging the Constitutionality of Section 13

The dates for the final arguments in the Richard Warman case against Marc Lemire under section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act have now been set. Written arguments must be filed in May and oral arguments will be held before the Tribunal in June.

Marc Lemire has challenged the constitutionality of s. 13 of the CHRA as a violation of freedom of expression, freedom of the press, freedom of conscience. A pdf of the written argument can be foundĀ here.

This case will set a crucial precedent in the fight against section 13! We need support from civil liberties associations!
