Cynthia L Maughan v University of British Columbia et al

Appellant (Cynthia Maughan’s) Leave to Appeal Submissions to the Supreme Court of Canada

LEAVE TO APPEAL

LEAVE TO APPEAL that Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms apply to The University Act to: guarantee equal Academic Freedom and speech rights to students of faith; and, eliminate university discretion for ad hoc restrictions and interferences with religious expression and practice.

Leave to Appeal Argument

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.
