What’s Hot on CanLII This Week

Here are the three most consulted English-language cases on CanLII for the week of November 8 – 14.

1. Bedford v. Canada, 2010 ONSC 4264

[1] There has been a long-standing debate in this country and elsewhere about the subject of prostitution. The only consensus that exists is that there is no consensus on the issue.

2. EJH (Re), 2011 SKQB 404

1) This is truly a remarkable story. The story of AH, a mother who has escaped a life of prostitution and squalor and bested addictions so that she might have the ability to parent her two children, five‑year‑old E and three‑year‑old KR. Despite the odds and the recommendation of the Ministry of Social Services, she will have the opportunity to do so.

[Colin Lachance notes: Over 20% of the views of this case can be directly attributed to the link published in this CBC article.

3. R. v. Sarrazin, 2011 SCC 54

[2] The question raised by the present appeal is whether this Court should relax the requirements for the application of the proviso, and whether, relaxed or not, the proviso [—”provided it is satisfied that no substantial wrong or miscarriage of justice has occurred” —] applies in this case to deny the respondents the new trial ordered by the Ontario Court of Appeal.

The most consulted French-language decision is R. c. Sarrazin, 2011 CSC 54, the translation of case #3 above.
