Description

Ktuxana Nation v. BC and the Shape of Religious Freedom

The main criticism of the recent Supreme Court of Canada decision in Ktuxana is that the court in its s. 2(a) (freedom of religion) analysis relies on a “Protestant” or “Christian” conception of religion - that focuses on personal belief rather than collective practice or shared ways of living. I will argue, however, that this criticism of the court’s approach to s. 2(a) fails to understand the practical limits of religious freedom in a spiritually and culturally diverse political community.
