York University's sexual assault policy sparks human-rights complaint
Publication: Globe and Mail
A York University student has filed a complaint with the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, alleging the school’s policy on sexual assault discriminates against victims. Elizabeth Sheehy, Common Law Section, comments on the fact that this student's complaint comes at a time when universities’ responses to sexual assault and harassment on campus are under fire, and it could force changes all over Canada.
Craig Forcese, Common Law Section, comments on the Conservatives posting ISIS photos and playing the group’s anthem to the backdrop of an election-style ad criticizing Justin Trudeau. “The more interesting question for me is whether you could go to a court and ask for this to just be taken down. The terrorist propaganda provision in the C-51 architecture doesn’t require the same as the actual speech crime itself."
