Project description

The Student Press Freedom Act (“SPFA”) is Canada’s first student journalism protection legislation, on its way to being passed by the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia to protect freedom of expression and of the press. The bill was designed by high school student journalists in response to their experience with censorship, aided by volunteering lawyers.
