UBC Reports | Vol. 51 | No. 6 | Jun. 2, 2005

Letter to the Editor

Dear UBC Reports:

In the last issue you published a summary of a lengthy Globe and Mail article in which I was quoted several times. The original article came periously close to misrepresenting my views. Your summary completely inverted them. Regarding the two points you chose to summarize, let me clarify: 1. The Singh decision has nothing to do with Hargit Singh; 2. Humanitarian and compassionate exceptions have little to do with humanitarianism or compassion.

Thank you,

Catherine Dauvergne
Assoc. Professor
Faculty of Law
