(2013) Criminal Reports, Forthcoming

Abstract:     
In a recent decision reviewing Canada’s terrorism legislation, the Supreme Court made a number of controversial statements on the fault element of certain terrorism offences. In this commentary, I review these statements and consider their impact on the future of mens rea in Canadian criminal law in general, and the crime of participating in a terrorist offence in particular.
