Factum Filed At British Columbia Court of Appeal
Yesterday, our agents in Vancouver filed our factum at the BCCA in the matter of Trinity Western University and the Law Society of British Columbia. The hearing is scheduled for June 1-3, 2016 in Vancouver. Our factum outlines our concerns about institutional religious freedom raised by this case. In summary, we argue that the LSBC’s decision amounts to nothing less than a rejection of Canada’s jealously and expansively protected religious freedoms. It strikes a devastating blow to the very heart of religious civil society and has the effect of reducing the rich tapestry of Canadian society to a monochromatic banner of uniformity. The long-term preservation of freedom, diversity, integrity, and Canada’s social capital requires the law to be willing to accept differences of belief and practice on such controversial issues as marriage.
