The recent polygamy reference case in the BC Supreme Court took 44 days of hearing, and had scores of witnesses, expert and individual, from all over North America. In the end, the Chief Justice declared that he had before him “the most comprehensive judicial record on the subject ever produced”, and held that polygamy’s harms outweighed the religious freedoms of the practice’s adherents. Craig Jones, lead counsel for the Attorney General of British Columbia (and a Green College Society Member) explains the unprecedented courtroom struggle over the constitutionality of s.293, Canada’s polygamy law, and the challenge of proving polygamy’s harms in the age of religious and sexual liberty.
