The CCF's 2015 Law and Freedom Conference
Please join us for some lively debate and discussion about the most important issues in Canadian constitutional law today — and how they impact human freedom. Early-bird and student tickets are still available
The presumption of innocence is an absolutely fundamental procedural protection and a hallmark of Western law. It can not be overstated how important it is to protect this right. This is why the CCF is intervening in Guindon v. The Queen.
"Who would ever imagine that failing to fill out some forms could result in a jail sentence of 18 months, an order preventing you from earning your living, and a fine of $116,000?"
"The court has upheld the forfeiture of the Montagues’ property. Their life’s savings are gone. Apparently, there is no leniency for those engaged in peaceful acts of civil disobedience."
"...racial purity is a corrosive and debasing focus for any group of human beings to choose to champion and rally around."
"Would somebody please explain to me again how this law is supposed to fight organized crime and assist crime victims?"
"...people realized how easily a government power they supported in principle could be used in practice to enrich a big company at the expense of an individual of limited means."
