The Province of British Columbia retained Howard Shapray to assist in its appeal from a decision of the B.C. Supreme Court declaring unconstitutional legislation that cancelled terms of the teachers collective agreement.  In a decision released today, Mr. Justice Harris of the Court of Appeal ordered a stay of the declaration of unconstitutionality and also stayed orders that would have permitted the plaintiff BC Teachers Federation to distribute to its members material protected by Cabinet confidentiality.
