I’ve received a few emails from people asking me when I will be commenting on the court proceeding between the Canadian Federation of Students and the Kwantlen Students Association.
I’m awaiting the public posting of the ruling by the BC Supreme Court (which is not the highest court in the province) before deciding on my opinion.
I will read the ruling with specific attention to what it could mean for referendums expected to occur next year – there are a few other independence movements that just need to collect their signatures before demanding a vote.
Depending on the wording used in the ruling, this case could be only provincial in nature or hold national significance.
This is why I am not saying anything at this point – I don’t know what the real story is… yet.
