SKU: 61849.02b Categories: , Tag:


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.

This paper was presented at the Constitutional Law Symposium in September 2012.
