LEGAL PERSONS AND THE CHARTER OF RIGHTS: GENDER, RACE AND SEXUALITY IN CANADA

Authors

  • KATHLEEN A LAHEY

Abstract

In this essay the writer argues that the "Persons" case has not been constructively employed to further full "legal personality" for all Canadians. The author further states that the Vriend case itself and the decision not to utilise the override provision augurs well but she writes that the lesbian and gay communities still await recognition of full constitutional personhood.
