Natacha Binsse-Masse

Nous commençons cette émission avec un retrospective de Natacha Binsse-Masse, un avocat activiste dans la communauté montréalaise. Lainie Basman a preparé une documentaire de sa vie solidaire.

Next, we discuss the mass arrests at Toronto’s G20 with Jeff Carolin. Carolin was a volunteer with the Movement Defence Committee, an autonomous working group of the Law Union of Ontario made up of legal workers, law students, activists and lawyers which provides legal support to progressive organizations and activists in Toronto. You can learn more about the MDC and their work, http://movementdefence.org/. Specifically, if you were charged at the G20 protests, they will provide you with helpful information.

G20 and Canadian law

I think there is a need to publish some material on the ongoing G20 legal discussions. First, here is a legal analysis by an Osgoode student published on “the Court” (a blog): Click here.

For starters, here is the suspicious ‘order-in-council’ which amended the public works act within the jurisdiction of Ontario: Click here. It was passed June 21 and expired June 28.
