Description

Written by two of Canada’s leading constitutional scholars, no other Canadian book provides such an accessible yet thorough and objective account of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The authors survey the manner in which Canadian courts have come to terms with a constitutionally entrenched bill of rights, focusing on the decisions of the Supreme Court of Canada. The purpose is to explain the Charter, its interpretation by the courts, and its practical application.

The text has been thoroughly updated to reflect Charter jurisprudence since publication of the third edition in 2005. Notable among those developments are significant changes to the way the Supreme Court has approached the interpretation of equality rights, constitutional remedies, and most recently the rights of the criminally accused.
