ONLINE MEETING: Cambie Surgeries Case: A Perspective on the Charter and the Medicare Protection Act 
This meeting is being hosted by the Constitutional/Civil Liberties Law Section.

Speaker(s): Robert Grant Q.C., counsel for Cambie Surgeries
Time: Monday, November 30, 2020 at 11:30am - 12:30pm (PT)
CPD Hours: 1.00 hour

On September 10, 2020, Justice Steeve dismissed the Cambie Surgeries Corporation and other plaintiffs claim against the Attorney General of British Columbia that provisions of the Province's Medicare Protection Act violated sections 7 and 15 of the Charter. An appeal of the decison is currently before the BC Court of Appeal and the matter may ultimately be decided by the Supreme Court of Canada. Robert Grant Q.C., counsel for Cambie Surgeries, will explain what the case is about, provide their insights on the decision, and discuss their differing perspectives on this important constitutional law case.
