Queen’s University legal expert Nicholas Bala is available to comment on the approval of polygamy charges against Bountiful leaders. The leaders of the two fundamentalist sects face charges of polygamy and the unlawful removal of children.
Professor Bala acted as an expert witness for Stop Polygamy in Canada during a 2011 trial in British Columbia where Chief Justice Robert Bauman upheld Canada’s 121-yearold polygamy ban. Professor Bala is in favour of polygamy remaining a criminal offence.
