Former Manitoba cabinet minister, Joseph Borowski is slated to appear before the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal on December 16, 1985. Mr. Borowski filed appeal papers in the fall of 1983, after Justice William Matheson of the Court of Queen’s Bench in Regina had rejected his bid to strike down the 1969 amendment to the Criminal Code. In 1969 the Canadian parliament took it upon itself to make the killing of the unborn “legal”.
In March Mr. Borowski complained that it was taking too long to set a hearing date. Ed Sojonky, lawyer for the federal Justice Department, said he has yet to fully prepare his arguments for the hearing. AH
