Recently, I had the pleasure of discussing and debating human rights law with Professor Bruce Pardy of my alma mater, Queen’s Law. The topic of the debate was Parliament’s Bill C-16, which amended the Canada Human Rights Act and Criminal Code, along with recent amendments to the Ontario Human Rights Code. The relevant amendments in both human rights statutes concern the addition of “gender” and “gender expression” as protected grounds against discrimination.
Thank you to the Runnymede Society for hosting the discussion and to Joanna Baron in particular for her excellent moderating. The podcast of the discussion can be found here.
