Volume 34

  • Abrametz v. Law Society of Saskatchewan, 2020 SKCA 81 34 Can. J. Admin. L. & Prac. 313 Morgana Kellythorne

“While still purporting to apply the Blencoe framework, the Court of Appeal in Abrametz took a broader and more interventionist approach to delay in administrative proceedings, clearly inspired by Jordan. Indeed, the Abrametz approach would extend greater protection from delay to litigants in administrative proceedings than to those in criminal proceedings.”

  • Beyond Reasonableness: The Dignitarian Structure of Human and Constitutional Rights 34 Can. J.L. & Juris. 341 Kai Möller

“The last two decades have witnessed a wide-ranging and global discussion of the theory and structure of human and constitutional rights. This debate initially focused on the principle of proportionality and subsequently on the related ideas of the ‘culture of justification’ and the ‘right to justification.’ There is now a far-reaching agreement that both proportionality and justification in human and constitutional rights law are concerned with the reasonableness, alternatively the justification in terms of public reason, of the act under consideration. Thus, reasonableness and/or public reason have assumed a, perhaps the, central place in the theory of human and constitutional rights. This article challenges this picture as incomplete and unbalanced.”

  • Justice Côté in 2019: Great Dissenter, Voice of the Court, or Both? 44 Man. L.J. 1 Sandrine Ampleman-Tremblay
  • Hryniak Comes to Manitoba: The Evolution of Manitoba Civil Procedure in the 2010s 44 Man. L.J. 36 Gerard J. Kennedy

“This article investigates whether the Supreme Court of Canada’s 2014 decision Hryniak v Mauldin has led to changes in Manitoba procedural law, largely in the summary judgment context. After introducing Hryniak and civil procedure reform’s place in the context of Canada’s access to justice crisis, the author turns to Manitoba. In addition to exploring the regulatory history of explicit changes to Manitoba’s Court of Queen’s Bench Rules, the author delves into Manitoba case law to determine their jurisprudential consequences and whether they have had effects in terms of the frequency that particular rules are used. Ultimately, it is concluded that, despite some potential to be bolder, by and large, Manitoba has prudently charted its own path in this important area of facilitating access to justice.”
