On Thursday, November 9, 2000, the Supreme Court of Canada will hear the case of Trinity Western University of British Columbia.

The case concerns the refusal by the British Columbia College of Teachers to approve the teacher education program at Trinity Western University because its code of conduct requires students and teachers to refrain from homosexual behaviour. The appeal is being brought by the College.

The CCCB will be intervening in the case.

A media release outlining the reasons why the CCCB asked the Court for permission to intervene was released last February.

Its Factum can be found on the CCCB website .

The CCCB will be represented at the hearing by Ottawa lawyer William Sammon.
