The Government of Canada is about to send Bill C78, An Act to Amend the Divorce Act, off to the Senate without any major amendments. We are in danger of missing a once in a generation opportunity to modernize our family law system by finally enshrining the principle of equal parenting. Equal parenting provides the best outcomes for children and has been adopted by several progressive countries and US states.

Join us for a timely public event on Equal Parenting and Bill C78, featuring Member of Parliament and federal Justice Critic Michael Cooper, Founder of Lawyers for shared Parenting Brian Ludmer and alienated dad turned activist Mike Glover.


Date/Time: Thursday, February 21, 2019, 7-9PM
Location: Wallberg Building Room 130 at the University of Toronto
184 College Street, Toronto, Ontario M5S 3E4

Event hosted by U of T Men’s Issues Awareness Society.
