Charter of Rights

This publication Charter of Rights is a concise analysis of what the Charter says and what the courts have so far taken it to mean. Beginning with a discussion of the Charter's origins, the author the dissects the various clauses of the document itself before turning to the Charter decisions which the Supreme Court has already handed down - including ones on Sunday-closing laws, abortion, minority language rights and the funding of Catholic schools in Ontario. In his treatment of each of these decisions, Ian Greene skillfully cuts through the legal language to reveal the fundamental issues involved.
Neither an uncritical booster of the Charter nor a violent opponent, Greene adopts an even-handed approach, criticizing some aspects of the Charter and supporting others.
Written by Ian Greene. Published by James Lorimer & Company, 1989.
