    Well they can back the power but why would they? The law society is doing their job as set out by the government. That is like saying the bank regulators are not allowed to actually regulate the banks.

    in america that would be illegal.

    as i stated before, that would be like the u.s. federal reserve telling private institutions they cannot use the dollar....because they don't like their polices

    This organization sounds no different from the American Bar Association. If they want to enact a rule against accrediting universities that practice discriminatory policies that it would be illegal for a public university to practice, that's a pretty fair action to take.

    so lets see, if 100 layers belong to a private club, which does not let in women, can the bar association, take away the lawyers right to practice?

    Colleges and universities in the US are nationally accredited through a standard program. I am not familiar with Canada and its school accreditation. By US standards if the school meets the requirements it should be accredited.

    I assume Canada has their version of the ABA, therefore there are certain criteria that a school has to meet be to be accredited. If the school meets the criteria then it should be accredited, if the school does not then it should not be accredited.
