Saskatchewan Working People Have Their Day at the Supreme Court of Canada

 

Tomorrow morning, as the culmination of a legal process that began in 2008, the Supreme Court of Canada (SCOC) will hear the Charter challenge of provincial Bills 5 & 6. The SFL et al will argue, as they did at both the Saskatchewan Court of Queen’s Bench and the Court of Appeal, that so-called “essential services” legislation and the changes made to the former Trade Union Act are not consistent with the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The SCOC will also hear arguments for why the right to strike should be enshrined as a Charter-protected right.
