  • A Practical Guide to the Suspension of s. 10 of the Charter during the Search Warrant Process

    $45.00
    This paper discusses delays in access to counsel, contrary to the s 10 Charter right to timely contact with a lawyer, during the search warrant process. The boundaries of the “exceptional circumstances” justifying delayed access to counsel are reviewed in consideration of the case law, which include the prevention of imminent harm to police or public, preservation against imminent loss of evidence, and real and present danger of jeopardizing an ongoing investigation. In addition, detailed tables summarizing case law relevant to each exceptional circumstance are included in the appendices.

  • A Thin Line Between Health and Crime: Reference re Assisted Human Reproduction Act and Federalism Di

    $35.00

    This paper grounds its argument in the new requirement born from Reference re Assisted Human Reproduction Act, which regulates Parliament’s power to enact criminal law with respect to health matters. The author argues that this new requirement provides a useful demarcation between federal and provincial interests in health, and, at a minimum, marks a move towards finding a principled solution to federalism disputes over health regulation.

  • Aboriginal Rights

    $75.00

    Consultation Update: Emerging & Persistent Issues Using Haida Nation v British Columbia’s vision of the duty to consult as existing along-side the negotiation process (aiming at a more fulsome settlement of aboriginal rights claims), this paper first provides an overview of the duty to consult and the state of the law. The author then considers the particular issues of the role of tribunals, agencies, and the identification of parties to a consultation. In conclusion, the author discusses the theme of reconciliation that continues to evolve around the duty to consult.

    Section 35(1) of the Constitution Act, 1982, the Duty to Consult, and the Government of Alberta’s First Nations Consultation Policy This paper argues that Alberta’s approach to First Nation consultation falls short of fulfilling the province’s constitutional obligation in this regard, but the development and management of public lands and resources appears to operate smoothly and efficiently, without any serious legal challenges or significant delays in this process. After a thorough summary of the current state of Canadian law regarding consultation and accommodation as well as Alberta’s policy and procedures, this paper evaluates Alberta’s policy and practices in light of the state of the law, the current operation of land and resource dispositions, and regulatory processes. Finally, this paper addresses the question of whether the conceptual failings of Alberta’s approach regarding consultation and accommodation should be a matter of serious concern given the absence of significant practical problems in the regulatory system.

  • Bail

    $75.00

    The authors see bail as, in many ways, an art, requiring not only an understanding of the rationale of the law of bail but also an ability to creatively prepare an approach in a strategic way, with a reasonable result in mind. This paper focuses on helping lawyers conceptualize an overall approach to judicial interim release on their files. The attached “toolkit” provides standardized forms, precedents, and checklists to make analysis of judicial interim release issues more effective, and to help maximize the efficient use of time while concurrently reducing or eliminating unnecessary use of court time.

    This paper was presented at the Criminal Advocacy – Judicial Interim Release Seminar in October 2013.
