In Government of Saskatchewan and Christ the Teacher Roman Catholic Separate School Division v. Good Spirit School Division https://shoresjardine.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/Order-LiveStreaming-GoodSpirit-CACV30753076.pdf the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal granted an Order allowing CBC to live stream the argument of the appeal.  The Order was issued pursuant to the Court’s policy on Cameras in the Courtroom: https://sasklawcourts.ca/images/documents/Resources/CA_Cameras_Courtroom_Policy.pdf.

The Appellant Attorney General of Saskatchewan consented to CBC’s Application to live stream the argument, and no party in the appeal opposed CBC’s request. Shores JardineLLP represents an Intervener in this appeal, the Public School Boards’ Association of Alberta, which took no position in respect of the Application to live stream the argument of the appeal.

The appeal was argued on March 12 and 13, 2019, before a Panel of five Justices of the Court of Appeal, sitting in Regina.  The CBC has published the attached newspaper article concerning the appeal:  https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/saskatchewan/appeal-hearing-begins-sask-govt-catholic-schools-1.5044878.  The live webcast of the appellate proceedings is now stored on the YouTube channel for CBC Saskatchewan.
