Pride and Prejudice

July 18, 2018

On this week's episode, Robert Danay, Hilary Young and Oliver Pulleyblank discuss two cases involving the apparent clash between freedom of religion and equality rights, particularly for LGBTQ persons.

The first case is Law Society of British Columbia v. Trinity Western University, in which the Supreme Court of Canada upheld the decision of a law society not to allow graduates from a proposed evangelical Christian law school to becomes members of the bar. The second case is Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, in which the Supreme Court of the United States overturned a decision by the Colorado Civil Rights Commission in which it the Commission found that a Christian baker had unlawfully refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex wedding.

In Obiter Dicta, Oliver endorses two excellent charities, Hilary recommends a recent judgment involving the tort of deceit and Rob endorses the Netflix series, The Staircase as well as The Docket podcast, in which episodes of the series are discussed from a Canadian perspective.
