The Supreme Court of Canada handed down its decision in the case of Hansman v. Neufeld, and West Vancouver lawyer Paul Jaffe believes it’s a concerning decision for all who value freedom of speech and expression.

For the past 6 years, Barry Neufeld, a former Chilliwack school trustee, has been making headlines related to the concerns he has raised about BC's sexual orientation curriculum SOGI 1-2-3 and radical gender ideology being taught in schools.

Neufeld's unwavering position on the matter attracted public condemnations from both some of his former colleagues and the BC Teachers Federation's Glen Hansman, who accused Neufeld's words of being bigoted, transphobic, and promoting hate in the media.

Neufeld's message also gained great support from parents and other citizens who share the same concerns about SOGI 1-2-3 and gender ideology for kids. So much support, in fact, that Neufeld was re-elected as a trustee in Chilliwack before ultimately losing his seat during BC's most recent municipal election.

In today's report, I interview Neufeld and his counsel, Paul Jaffe, about Canada's highest court's decision to end Neufeld's ability to continue pursuing a defamation case against Hansman and what this means for freedom of speech in Canada's future.

If you appreciate that instead of vilifying Neufeld, we've done multiple reports that allow him to express his concerns surrounding SOGI and gender ideology for kids, please consider supporting the many costs involved in bringing you reports like this.
