In organizing that meeting, I invited leading labour and constitutional law scholars, practitioners and judges from Europe, South Africa, Israel, the United States and the United Kingdom, as well as from across Canada, to attend in order to help answer the most pressing issue facing students and practitioners of Canadian labour law today.
