The Calgary Herald reports that the Crown attorney has stayed trespassing charges against six members of the Genocide Awareness Project, including five students at the University of Calgary’s Campus Pro-Life Club. An Alberta Justice spokesman said there wasn’t enough evidence to proceed, but I’m guessing that they wanted to avoid the embarrassment of prosecuting some brave young people for peaceabley if controversially engaging their fellow students in public debate. The trail was scheduled to begin tomorrow. The Canadian Constitution Foundation said the decision to not pursue the case is a victory for freedom of speech.

Here is The Interim’s coverage of the demonstration and arrest and an editorial we ran defending comparing abortion to genocide.
