Hogg delivers insights on Ktunaxa case


Professor Peter Hogg, one of Canada’s foremost experts in constitutional law, delivered the Public Law Research Group’s Distinguished Lecture on March 22. He spoke on the intersection of Aboriginal rights and freedom of religion in the Supreme Court of Canada’s recent decision in Ktunaxa Nation v. British Columbia. First-year Western Law students were also treated to a memorable fireside chat with Professor Hogg, who shared his insights about the history of major constitutional cases, the future of Canadian public law, and the value of being open to unexpected opportunities. “We were very fortunate to hear the views of Professor Hogg, a brilliant scholar of constitutional law, on the Ktunaxa case and a variety of other constitutional law and practicerelated topics,” said Professor Wade Wright, codirector of the Public Law Research Group.
