The Supreme Court of Canada (S.C.C.) heard arguments in Her Majesty the Queen in Right of the Province of Alberta v. Hutterian Brethren of Wilson Colony, et al on October 12, 2008. A decision is pending. The case arose after the Alberta government changed its driver’s licence regulations to require that individuals have their photo appear on their licence. The Hutterites objected to the regulations on religious grounds, winning at both the trial and appeal levels.
