(Constitution / Charter of rights / Freedom of expression)
B challenged Alberta legislation that prevents school board employees from running for elected office as a school board trustee.  B argued that the law infringed freedom of expression under s. 2(b) of the Charter.  The Court held that the right to run for school board trustee is not protected expression under the Charter, and upheld the prohibition.
