Canada’s Charter at 35: Live video of a Maclean’s and Hot Docs event

On April 29 at 1 PM ET, John Geddes interviews former Supreme Court justice Ian Binnie on the legacy of Canada’s Charter. Watch it live here


As part of the 2017 Hot Docs Festival—North America’s largest documentary film festival—Maclean’s is proud to present a Curious Minds–style conversation with former justice of the Supreme Court of Canada Ian Binnie, where he and Maclean’s Ottawa bureau chief John Geddes will unravel the history, legacy and ongoing vitality of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Focusing around pressing issues facing Canadians today, the event will also feature an exclusive sneak peek of “In the Name of All Canadians,” Hot Docs’ Canada feature compilation of short films on the Charter, funded in part by the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario. Free tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis at the TIFF Bell Lightbox beginning one hour before the event, but we are live-streaming it here starting at 1 PM ET. You can read John Geddes’s set-up for the event here, and read the rest of our Hot Docs coverage here.
