Description

The days of the Office of Religious Freedom may be numbered. Established by the Conservative government in 2013 to advocate on behalf of threatened religious minorities around the world, and currently housed within Global Affairs Canada, its ambassador’s term and its funding will run out at the end of March. The federal government should let it expire. It can do a better job of promoting religious freedom — and all human rights — without an Office of Religious Freedom.
