for this assignment, you will be reading about and responding to a Constitutional challenge to one of Canada’s laws which was in the courts in the fall of 2017.

Why is the CCLA challenging this law? Based on what you have read, explain why you either think that the law is unconstitutional or not. Next, how important do you think it is that this law be challenged?
