First Amendment keynote John Whyte, former director of Constitutional Law for the Government of Saskatchewan, will discuss the many challenges democracy faces today, including novel personalities, unequal distribution, poor manners, deep ethnic and social divisions, changes in communications systems and shifts in legal and political morals.

John Whyte’s distinguished career includes nearly thirty years on the Faculty of Law at Queen’s University, service as Saskatchewan’s Deputy Minister of Justice and Deputy Attorney-General, and participation in constitutional reform processes in the Republic of Georgia, Nepal, and Vietnam. He has appeared before the Supreme Court of Canada in a number of constitutional cases.
