Tree symbolizes constitutional growth and change

A tree is the perfect symbol of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, says law student Lama Sabbagh.

“Like a tree, the charter grows and changes, evolving with society,” she said Tuesday as members of the Charter Project sponsored a tree planting outside the Ron W. Ianni Faculty of Law Building.

Plus, she added, the tree is a red maple, a symbol of Canadian identity.
