ARGUMENT -The lower courts erred in  defining  and assessing the “practicing Christian”  plaintiff as having  “religiosity” and “religious scruples” while failing to make a finding of her Religious Freedom protection. The  lower courts erred in: making a finding of faculty’s Academic Freedom rights to assess the sincerity of the plaintiff/students’ religious beliefs; excluding from consideration professor-student power imbalance; the plaintiff/students’ freedom to absent  from the Sunday Classes without penalty; and, the plaintiff/students of faiths’ rights to refute and pursue fruitful avenues of  religious inquiry and expression.PDF Argument – Appeal to be Heard at the Supreme Court of Canada   HTML Argument – Appeal to be Heard at the Supreme Court of Canada PART III
