♨ 3. R v Spencer 2011 SKCA 144
 Given Mr. Spencer was using his computer inside his home to access child pornography, Mr. Spencer undoubtedly held a subjective expectation of privacy in the Disclosed Information; but was his expectation objectively reasonable, having regard for the totality of the circumstances?
See also R v Trapp 2011 SKCA 143, the associated case. These are likely to incur some media commentary and analysis, dealing as they do with privacy, computers and the criminal law search power.
The most-consulted French-language opinion was R. c. Bouchard-Lebrun 2011 CSC 58.
 Dans ce pourvoi, la Cour doit décider si une psychose toxique résultant d’un état d’intoxication dans lequel un accusé s’est volontairement placé en consommant des drogues chimiques constitue un « troubl[e] menta[l] » au sens de l’art. 16 du Code criminel, L.R.C. 1985, ch. C-46 (« C. cr. »), et permet ainsi à l’appelant d’échapper à sa responsabilité pénale pour une infraction comportant une atteinte à l’intégrité physique d’autrui.
