Women ski jumpers to plead case in B.C. court
CTV has learned of a new development in the women's ski jumping controversy.
It turns out that the women, who have been fighting for the right to fly at the 2010 Games in Vancouver and Whistler, will get their day in court.
Back in May, several international jumpers launched a lawsuit against Vancouver's Olympic Organizing committee (VANOC).
They argue that VANOC is staging the games with the financial support of the federal, provincial and municipal governments and is therefore is subject to the Canadian Charter of Rights.
The Charter prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender.
The women and their lawyer will be holding a news conference on Tuesday morning to formally announce that the case is going to the British Columbia Supreme Court.
Several days have been set aside in the spring for a case that will proceed a little less than a year before the Games begin.
