PRESS RELEASE: All Day National Teach-In

The New Taboo:
Respect for the Rule of Law in Canada

Toronto: March 25, 2019

Over 160 people participated in the inaugural All-Day National Teach-In on March 17, 2019, sponsored by the Canadians for the Rule of Law (CFTRL).  Representing the public and private sectors - education, religious institutions, government, community organizations, as well as concerned individuals-- the attendees were informed and inspired by a day-long series of panels and briefing sessions involving lawfare experts from throughout North America and Europe.

Topics included CFTRL action priorities such as lawfare, media propaganda, hate speech, terrorism and public safety, religion in the public space, and discrimination in enforcement of laws, to name a few.  The information presented in speeches and panels was a precursor to two Need for Volunteer Action Workshops which engaged and assisted the participants in volunteering for either research, advocacy and litigation. A very impressive 60 people signed up a Volunteers at one of the six computers at the very busy Volunteer Station.

One highlight of the day was the presentation of the premier CFTRL Award to Donald Carr, O.Ont., Q.C., J.D., L.H.D., TEP, for his over 60 years as leader, teacher, practitioner, counsel, mentor and voice of compassion, conscience and reason in the legal and communal spheres - domestically and internationally.

 

Here are some participants' comments:

"I did have an opportunity to speak with many at the event, and it was a positive networking opportunity, with both old and new friends, who are generally on the same page with respect to many of the broader issues that concern us all." - Michael Mostyn

"The Teach-In was a well organized, effective step forward for the organization.  My kudos to all who contributed substantially to its success." - Frank Feldman

"The conference overall was excellent and a tribute to all of the hard work the organizers put into making it so." - Dr Lawrence Hart

"Well done and congratulations on a successful event." - Benjamin Dichter

"There are no words to thank you for everything that you have done!  In all my years of community involvement, I have never seen such dedication, commitment, hard work - and such a Teach-In success." - Donald Carr

"The Teach-in was a terrific success.  Good planning, good execution and a large lineup of terrific speakers made the event a watershed.  Thank you for your continuing work in this area, and for allowing us to participate in the event." - Robert Samery

"Your tireless efforts appear to have paid off with a successful outcome.  Best of luck on future CFTRL actions." - Dr Steven Samuel

"Thank you for a very well planned and executed day of information and action.  It is too bad that we need to have these discussions in Canada." - Reena Greenwald
