SESSION DESCRIPTIONS:


Tuesday, July 19  at 10:00 am
THE USSC ABORTION DECISION

While we have seen only   a draft of the decision likely to be handed down in a month or so, the expectation is that the court will overturn Roe v. Wade. My talk will describe the developments in this area of the law over the last quarter of the 20th century in Canada and the United States that led to the liberalization of abortion laws. I would then review the USSC judgment in Dobbs and its implications for future developments concerning abortion laws as well as other possible constitutional ramifications from the Dobbs decision.

Tuesday, July 26 at 10:00 am
GENOCIDE IN UKRAINE

I would start my discussion with a brief history of the development of the legal concept of genocide and the adoption of the Genocide Convention by the UN in the middle of the 20th century. I would review the Convention and Canada's enactment of the Convention's principles into Canadian law.  Finally, I would consider whether Russia's actions in the war in Ukraine constitute the crime of genocide.

Tuesday, August 9 at 10:00 am
GEOARCHAEOLOGY

Related to the subject of genocide are developments over the last 20 years in the the use of ground penetrating radar (GDR) to uncover mass graves dating back to the Holocaust as well as unmarked graves recently discovered on the grounds of residential schools in Canada. I will explore the role of Father Patrick Desbois role in uncovering t mass graves from the so-called Holocaust by Bullets. I will provide a number of examples of the contributions of the use of GDR in uncovering mass graves dating back to the Holocaust as well as other information relevant to the history of the Holocaust.
