Canadian Lawyer magazine has vaporized a column taking aim at a British Columbia courts policy to mandate pronoun usage in proceedings, following a coordinated campaign by a number of lawyers. Law Society of Ontario bencher and lawyer Jared Brown tells True North’s Andrew Lawton it’s clear these lawyers – and the magazine – don’t support free speech.
