Morse wins right to appeal flag-burning conviction

By Steven | May 18, 2010

Yay! Tony Shaw, Felix Geiringer and I have been granted leave by Supreme Court to argue that Valerie Morse should not have been convicted of offensive behaviour for burning a flag at an Anzac Day ceremony. Along the way, hopefully we’ll be able to sort out how the Bill of Rights applies to open-textured criminal offences like this one, and particularly when they’re applied to protesters.

    When do you expect the case to be heard? It will be interesting to come and watch this one.
