Students’ Charter rights weren’t breached: court

Carleton had anti-abortion protesters arrested in 2010


Former Carleton University students who sued the university and its president after the school had them arrested for trespassing in 2010 can’t claim their Charter right to free expression was breached when the school refused to give them space to protest, the Ontario Court of Appeal ruled Wednesday. Ruth Lobo and John McLeod were arrested after their club, Carleton Lifeline, hung posters of aborted fetuses in a prominent space on campus called Tory Quad. The appeal court agreed with a January decision that the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which limits the power of governments, doesn’t apply to the private institution in this case.
