Annamaria Enenajor quoted in The Lawyer’s Daily

Annamaria Enenajor comments in The Lawyer’s Daily on a recent Ontario Court of Appeal ruling that quashed a trespass charge against a protester who was protesting on town property. Enenajor, who practices criminal and constitutional law described how the decision brought clarity to the scope of protection provided under s. 2(b) of the Charter. Speaking to the publication, she stated, “It really challenged the notion that uncivil protest is necessarily violent protest.”

The objective of political protest is often to make people feel uncomfortable…The point is to challenge the status quo, to challenge power…
