The Supreme Court Law Review: Osgoode’s Annual Constitutional Cases Conference

Article Title

Praise and Promises


Donna Greschner


During the past 20 years, equality jurisprudence has not followed a straight line. But it does have points and patterns. This paper offers 15 points about section 15 that are divided into two categories: reasons for praise, and promises still to keep. They aim to place the jurisprudence in a celebratory, comparative, and critical context. Many of us reflecting upon the past 20 years have personal memories of the Charter’s entrenchment in 1982 and section 15’s activation in 1985. Legal events and processes are intertwined with personal stories. While the author connect points in a particular way, draw your own web through the m and add other ones, too.
