Runnymede Society National Director releases update regarding Law & Freedom 2022:
I’d like to begin by thanking everyone who has already registered to attend Law & Freedom 2022. We know what this conference means to so many of you, and how eager our members are to gather together again in person at Hart House after being separated for much of the pandemic. Over the past few months, we’ve been hard at work planning what we hope will be the best Runnymede Society conference yet.
But if the last two years have taught us anything, it’s that plans change. In light of the rapidly increasing number of omicron variant cases in Ontario, our team has spent the last week carefully re-assessing the status of our national conference. After consulting with our venue, we’ve made the difficult decision to reschedule Law & Freedom 2022.
Although Ontario currently allows for conference venues to host events at 50% capacity with proof-of-vaccination, we’re not confident that this will still be the case by our original conference dates of January 21-22. At the same time, we also know how keen many of you are to attend our conference in person. Given the circumstances, we’ve decided that the most prudent course of action is to postpone the conference in the hope that we will be able to host attendees in person on a later date.
Law & Freedom 2022 will now take place from Friday, March 11 to Saturday, March 12 at Hart House in Toronto. I am delighted to confirm that our previously-announced keynote speakers, Marie Henein and Justice Suzanne Côté, will still be joining us on these rescheduled dates. We plan to unveil our full conference agenda in the coming weeks.
Thank you to all of our supporters for their patience and understanding during these uncertain times. I look forward to hopefully meeting you all at Hart House on March 11-12.
National Director, Runnymede Society
