Description

No other Canadian book provides such an accessible yet thorough and objective account of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The text has been thoroughly updated to reflect Charter jurisprudence since publication of the second edition in 2002. It covers the history of the Charter, legitimacy of judicial review, limitation of Charter rights, Charter litigation, language rights, equality rights, and Charter rights of the criminally accused.
