  • Does the word ‘person’ in Section 24 of The British North America Act include female persons?"
  • But the Supreme Court denied the appeal
  • I'm sorry but the Act had to be interpreted in light of the times in which it was written. 
  • This ruling leaves us abashed, but not despairing, humbled but not hopeless. Acts can be amended and we believe they will.
  • But they didn't give up hope, and took it to the Canada’s highest court at the time.
  • 1929-  the Privy Council of England
