Fundamental Justice: Section 7 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, 2nd ed.

Hamish Stewart

“Section 7 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms provides that “[e]veryone has the right to life, liberty and security of the person and the right not to be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice.” This book analyzes all aspects of section 7. It outlines the place of section 7 in the constitutional order; how courts decide whether a particular legal principle is so fundamental that it merits recognition under section 7; the conditions under which section 7 will apply to a legal dispute; the legal norms that have been recognized, or rejected, as principles of fundamental justice under section 7; and the very limited circumstances in which an infringement of section 7 will be justified under section 1. The second edition has been extensively revised to take into account several significant changes in the law over the last several years, including the Supreme Court of Canada’s decisions in Bedford (sex work) and Carter (medically assisted dying).”

Canadian Tort Law, 11th ed.

Allen M. Linden, Bruce Feldthusen, Margaret Isabel Hall, Erik S. Knutsen, and Hilary Young

“When Canadian Tort Law was first published in 1972, it became the first treatise on the law of torts in Canada. The eleventh edition continues the standard of excellence achieved by each previous edition. As the treatise most commonly cited by the Supreme Court of Canada and other Canadian courts, Canadian Tort Law has greatly influenced the development of tort law in Canada.

The text has been updated and in places substantially re-written to reflect changes in tort law in the past few years. In addition to incumbent author Bruce Feldthusen, three new leading scholars of Canadian tort law have added their expertise – Erik Knutsen on causation, Margaret Hall on nuisance and Hilary Young on defamation. Coverage includes:

  • Detailed discussion of every facet of tort law, including intentional torts and negligence – explaining the law from a uniquely Canadian perspective
  • Details of all important appellate caselaw from the last five years – keeping you current on decisions that impact how torts cases are approached
  • Simple, straightforward prose – clarifying complex theoretical issues”
