2023-Nov-17: CLEBC Human Rights Conference
On November 17, 2023, Lisa C. Fong, KC and Ruben Tillman spoke at CLEBC's Human Rights Conference about,
- how s 8.1 of the BC Interpretation Act, and DRIPA/UNDRIP can be used to interpret the Human Rights Code and provide for deeper engagement with Indigenous human rights issues on a systemic level;
- our recent human rights cases, including the Maxwell Johnson case, and the reason we as lawyers take these kinds of cases on; and
- the patterns we have seen in taking on systemic discrimination cases, including impediments to progress in addressing systemic issues.
