Abstract

This paper was originally written for Dr. Clare McGovern’s Political Science 428 course The Impact of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The guidelines for this paper were to “assess the impact of the Charter on a specific area of Canadian law, advance and defend a thesis, and consider counter arguments using empirical evidence.” Students were asked to question a legal principle having to do with the impact of the Charter, and either defend it or put forth a new legal principle that they thought courts in Canada should adopt instead. This is a condensed version of the original paper. It uses APA citation style.
