Public Consultation regarding Trinty Western

Rene Gallant: President of the Nova Scotia Barrister's Society

The Nova Scotia Barristers' Society says it will hold a public consultation on whether to recognize a law degree from Trinity Western University, the controversial Christian school in the Fraser Valley, B.C., with a policy against same-sex relationships.

Whats behind this is a six page form that students at Trinity western sign. All students at Trinity Western University must sign the TWU Community Covenant Agreement, which contains a clause requiring abstinence from "sexual intimacy that violates the sacredness of marriage between a man and a woman."

You have until Friday to let it know you want your opinion known, either provide a submission in person in Halifax or by writing.
