On Thursday, Feb. 3, the Canadian Civil Liberties Association’s (CCLA) general counsel, Nathalie Des Rosiers, will deliver a public lecture at the University of New Brunswick’s Ludlow Hall, Room 2A at 11:30 a.m. During the public lecture, entitled “Is the right to dissent in danger? Civil liberties in Canada after the G20 summit: CCLA’s perspective,” Des Rosiers will speak about the violations of rights that occurred at the Toronto 2010 G20 summit, the threat this poses to civil liberties in Canada, and the action taken by the CCLA in response to these violations. Des Rosiers is coming to UNB as part of UNB’s Law Student Society Speaker’s Hour, which connects the law school with people from both the legal community and the community abroad by hosting weekly presentations open to the public. CCLA is a national organization dedicated to promoting respect for and observance of fundamental human rights and civil liberties. Its work, which includes research, public education and advocacy, aims to defend and ensure the protection and full exercise of those rights and liberties.
