When it comes to excluding evidence under the Charter, criminal defence lawyers and prosecutors are sometimes unclear about the various factors that must considered, and the analysis that must take place, when S.24(2) is being invoked. This text is the only criminal law book that deals exclusively with S.24(2), taking an in-depth look at recent jurisprudence and relevant case law, and giving practical guidelines as to how the law should be applied. Written by a practising criminal lawyer, the author helps practitioners understand how courts review factors relevant to a S.24(2) inquiry, and how such factors are being balanced.
