    IALL: Canada, the Cultural Mosaic and International Law

    October 15, 2012

    The International Association of Law Libraries (IALL) held its 31th Annual Course in Toronto, Canada from the September 30 until October 4, 2012. This year’s annual conference was organized by the Faculty of Law of the University of Toronto and Osgoode Hall Law School of York University. The theme of the Conference was “Canada, the Cultural Mosaic and International Law”. The cultural mosaic as a principle has found its way into legislation since the 1970s and the legendary Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau has greatly contributed to this development. In 1988 the ‘Canadian Multiculturalism Act’ was adopted in order to guarantee “the freedom of all members of Canadian society to preserve, enhance and share their cultural heritage”. This interest was reconfirmed in the 1992 Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

For birds, habitat loss is the most important factor closely followed by threats posed by materials used to build in the construction industry. The trend among architects is to use plate glass in building, purely for aesthetic reasons.
