Perspectives on Human Rights in Canada

Students of Histoire canadienne and representatives of Kelvin's HASTA (Hopeful Aware Students Taking Action) took part in the Canadian Museum for Human Rights trial run of one of its educational programs recently.  The students were asked to test-run a program entitled "Perspectives on Human Rights in Canada." This afforded them the opportunity to be among the first students in Canada to try out, as a class, such activities as the Debate Circle, during which they debated the discussed and debated the limits to Freedom of Speech as exemplified by the Keegstra Case.  Students also spent time examining primary source testimonies from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and other human rights cases from Canada's past.  Special thanks to Kelvin graduate Sarah Watkins, who led the Kelvin group as CMHR Interprète principale.
