Life, Liberty and Equality – Canadian-Style: The Interplay Between Sections 7 and 15 of the Charter

February 27, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

This half-day conference examined in detail the interplay between sections 7 and 15 of the Charter.

Papers were presented that stimulated and developed an ongoing exploration of the relationship between sections 7 and 15. Issues addressed include:

• Is equality a principle of fundamental justice under section 7?
• How have the courts treated the two separate grounds for challenging government action?
• Are their strategic advantages to pleading both grounds or only one?
• Protecting marginalized groups.
• How does the relationship between the sections play out in circumstances such as challenges to mental health legislation?
