The Court of Appeal for Ontario has just released a unanimous decision upholding Justice Marshall’s decision in McHale v. R., 2009 which was appealed by the Crown after Marshall ruled it did not have the authority to withdraw charges against several government employees before McHale could present the evidence.
The decision upholds a ruling by Justice Marshall in which he emphasized the importance of the case McHale was bringing before the Court by quoting from the Law Reform Commission of Canada and thinkers such as Glanville Williams and Alexander Hamilton, one of the fathers of the U.S. constitution.
