B.C. still mulling sending polygamy ban to Supreme Court of Canada
by Doug Ward
The B.C. government is still considering whether to take last month's B.C. Supreme Court ruling upholding Canada's ban on polygamy to a higher court to give it more legal heft.
Government lawyers are reviewing the judgment by Chief Justice Robert Bauman to determine the government's legal options, Attorney-General Shirley Bond said Friday.
Bauman ruled that the criminalization of polygamy is constitutional even though it infringes on some sections of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
