Please join Irwin Law and the Canadian Civil Liberties Association for the Toronto book launch of At the Barricades: A Memoir. Author A. Alan Borovoy will be in attendance.

Best known as General Counsel of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association, a position he held for over 40 years, A. Alan Borovoy was at the centre of many of the most profound and difficult public debates of last half century. In At the Barricades, Borovoy reflects on the events that have shaped the Canadian political legal landscape from the Cold War of the 1950s and 60s to the “war on terrorism” in the 21st century. He provides a first-hand account of Québec’s FLQ crisis of 1970, the protests on the abortion controversy, the battles over free speech, hate speech, and pornography, and the struggles to protect the rights of Aboriginal peoples, the economically disadvantaged, and victims of police misconduct.

The release of At the Barricades: A Memoir is timely because it coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association. We hope you will join us and the CCLA in celebrating many more decades of positive change for all Canadians.
