Bruce Pardy and Asher Honickman: Bill C-16 is Law. Now What?

Discussion with Professor Bruce Pardy, Queen’s Faculty of Law and Asher Honickman, Advocates for the Rule of Law. What does Bill C-16 mean and how would alleged human rights violations under Bill C-16 be litigated? We discuss the Ontario Human Rights Commission’s guidelines and how they might interact with an allegation of a Charter breach of freedom of expression, civility vs. legal obligations, classical conceptions of negative versus positive human rights, and some procedural and principled implications of Bill C-16.
