Abstract:     
In R. v. N.S., 2010 ONCA 670, a unanimous Court of Appeal for Ontario ruled that preliminary inquiry judges can consider Charter values in evaluating matters relating to the preliminary inquiry and established a framework for establishing and reconciling competing rights claims. The matter is now under appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada, with oral arguments heard on December 8th, 2011.
