Episode details

In December, the Chief Justice of the B.C. Supreme Court and B.C. Provincial Court issued a practice directive advising lawyers and the public that all parties appearing in court would be asked to specify "preferred pronouns." How this could impact cases dealing with gender identity and parental rights is troubling, considering recent cases wherein parents opposed the transitioning of their kids. Shahdin Farsai, an Iranian-Canadian lawyer practicing in British Columbia, spoke out, expressing concerns about compelled speech and how such a policy might impact a client’s legal interests. In this episode, Meghan Murphy speaks with Shahdin about her arguments and experiences attempting to stand up to trans activists in the legal industry.
