70 Canada-based organizations, including LRWC, endorsed a letter welcoming restoration of Canada’s Court Challenges Program (CCP) and objecting to expansion of the focus to include claims under sections 2, 3, 4, and 27 of the Charter. The letters requests that the proposed mandate be changed to preserve the CCP’s historic mandate of protecting and advancing equality rights and enabling access to courts by marginalized individuals and groups and official-language minority communities.
