1993 | 227 pages
Canada adopted the Charter of Rights and Freedoms in 1982. It has since become a powerful tool for those seeking greater equity. But its impact extends well beyond the courtroom. Here, seven scholars address these issues: how have the courts changed; how have judges reconciled diverse groups’ claims; what are the implications of these developments; and how do we strengthen under-represented groups. Much original research and critical commentaries add a new dimension the Charter debate.
