A Practical Guide to Canadian Extradition is a timely addition to Canadian legal literature, particularly in an era in which modern transportation and communication methods and technology have been able to assist criminals in using national boundaries to evade punishment and to frustrate courts and law enforcement. Nancy McCormack Reference Librarian Queens University Kingston, ON An Act respecting extradition, to amend the Canada Evidence Act, the Criminal Code, the Immigration Act and the Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters Act and to amend and repeal other Acts in consequence came into force on June 17, 1999. The Act repeals the Extradition Act, replacing it with a new Extradition Act that simplifies the extradition process. This Guide provides Crown prosecutors, defence counsel and trial judges with the practical considerations of the conduct of extraditions in Canada. The authors systematically compare the new Act with the former Extradition Act on a section-by-section basis, explaining the significance of the changes and providing expert analysis and interpretation of the provisions of the legislation as well as extradition treaties. The book also covers extradition to Canada from foreign countries, and other forms of mutual assistance in criminal matters by one state to another, such as locating witnesses, executing requests for search and seizure, and serving documents.
