CCF Whatcott intervention on CBC

Posted In:  MediaVideos    

Chris Schafer joins CBC Connect host Mark Kelly to talk about the recent Supreme Court hearing of Whatcott. William Whatcott was ordered to pay $17,500 to a group of individuals offended by pamplets he was distributing. This case made it all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada where it could play an important role in defining freedom of expression in the future. The CCF intervened in the case in defence of freedom of expression.
