Decisions interpreting and applying the obligations are thoroughly reviewed, drawing on cases from across Canada and from courts of all levels. Contents include • underlying principles • exceptions to disclosure • relationship of Crown to police and defence • police notes • remedies for breach • production of confidential third party records and their use at trial. Appendices set out the Crown guidelines enunciated by the Attorney General of each province, plus statutory requirements under the Criminal Code and other legislation. Written by one of Canada’s leading Crown attorneys and legal commentators.
