Case Law Highlights

  • R. v. Canfield (2020, ABCA) – Alberta’s Court of Appeal held s. 98(1)(a) of the Customs Act to be unconstitutional to the extent that it permits border security officers to perform unlimited searches of personal electronic devices without any threshold requirement.
  • Ontario (Attorney General) v. G. (2020, SCC) – In a case that involved the federal Sex Offender Information Registration Act and Ontario’s Christopher’s Law, the Supreme Court of Canada held the provincial statute to have made discriminatory distinctions between those found guilty and those found not criminally responsible on account of mental disorder, contrary to s. 15(1) of the Charter, which distinctions could not be saved under s. 1.
  • Germany v. Duong (2020, BCCA) – Where a person, who had attended a portion of their trial, absconds, resulting in a conviction and sentencing in absentia, the person could not then avail themselves of the protection afforded under s. 29(1)(a) of the Extradition Act – rather, s. 29(1)(b) would properly apply.
  • R. v. Martin (2020, NLCA) – Section 31.1 of the Canada Evidence Act requires evidence “capable of supporting a finding” of the authentication of electronic evidence sought to be admitted, not a determination that it is in fact what it purports to be – the court’s reliance upon and weighing of the electronic evidence will hinge on the balance of all admissible evidence.
  • R. v. Kanthasamy (2020, ONCA) – The Court of Appeal for Ontario suggested an inmate, who suffered from a heart condition and whose continued incarceration impacted upon the care for his disabled daughter and ill wife, could be eligible for early parole under s. 121(1) of the Corrections and Conditional Release Act.

Legislative Highlights

The edition features recent amendments, including those to the following statutes and regulations:

  • Competition Act
  • Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing Regulations
