  • Taylor: section 10(b) rights applying where suspect taken to hospital
  • Hart and Mack: Mr. Big confessions admissible if probative and not abusive
  • Anderson: revised approach to reviewing prosecutorial discretion
  • St-Cloud: public confidence ground to deny bail not only for rare use
  • Antic: re-enforcing ladder approach for bail
  • Kokopenace: lack of indigenous people on jury polls not violating rights to jury
  • Jordan: presumptive ceilings for s.11(b) right to trial within reasonable time
  • Paterson: confirming Grant approach to robust s.24(2) exclusion of evidence
