Why did Canada’s law societies ban Christian lawyers?

From Ezra Levant’s email list:
Levant
Dear JM,

Trinity Western University’s law school is fully accredited. But because its students live by Christian values, the Law Society of Upper Canada and the Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society have voted to ban TWU graduates from practicing law in their provinces.

It’s a shocking attack on freedom of religion — clearly contrary to the promise of freedom of religion in Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

You can watch my TV clip on this issue and read my Sun column about it too. Please join me in demanding that these law societies immediately rescind their bigoted rulings. Sign the petition at AntiChristian.ca.

Let’s keep fighting for freedom until everyone is equal before the law.

Have a good weekend!

Yours truly,

Ezra Levant

P.S. You can be the first to read my new book! It will be in bookstores on May 13th, but you can pre-order your copy of Groundswell: The Case for Fracking on Amazon now.
