Announcing LEAF Thunder Bay’s Inaugural Persons Day Breakfast on October 25, 2017 at the Bora Laskin Faculty of Law in the Patterson Auditorium from 7:30-10:00 AM
Please join us for a celebratory breakfast and keynote speech by The Honourable Madam Justice Pierce to mark the launch of LEAF’s newest branch and to commemorate the anniversary of the Privy Council’s 1929 Persons Case – a landmark decision for equality.
This is our first ever event in Thunder Bay! The funds raised for LEAF at this event directly support LEAF’s work in advancing substantive equality rights for women and girls in Canada through litigation, law reform and public education. Since its establishment in 1985, LEAF has intervened in many high-profile cases before the Supreme Court of Canada, and is instrumental in ensuring that equality rights are protected in Canadian Courts under sections 15 and 28 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
