The Unquiet Revolution

Osgoode forms a Clinical Training Committee to supervise the activities of the Community and Legal Assistance Services Programme (CLASP). The original committee includes Professors William Neilson, Garry Watson, Stephen Borins, and students, Terry O’Sullivan and Larry Taman. The October Crisis occurs. In response, Pierre Trudeau introduces the War Measures Act. Believing this to be an unjustifiable suppression of civil liberties, Osgoode students hold a teach-in in protest of the War Measures Act.
