CCF litigation director discusses legal, constitutional implications of appeal for CCC


The Canada Christian College v. Post Secondary Education et al case went before the Court of Appeal for Ontario this week. Canadian Constitution Foundation (CCF) was granted intervenor status in the case and litigation director Christine Van Geyn has penned an editorial for Policy Options explaining CCF’s perspective on the legal and constitutional context and implications of the appeal. Van Geyn asserts CCF’s position that the government cannot refuse to implement legislation that it has already passed. “While the political theatre around the case creates a spectacle, it is actually in such cases where executive overreach is most likely to occur and be tolerated,” concludes Van Geyn. “That does not make the overreach right or legal.”
