Abstract

The author analyzes the Supreme Court of Canada's recent decision dealing with a right of access to government property for expressive purposes, under s. 2(b) of the Charter. In her view, the majority approach, which would screen such claims initially under s. 2(b), is problematic. Given the difficulties inherent in Chief Justice McLachlin's application of Irwin Toy, she endorses the dissenting opinion by L'Heureux-Dube J., which would decide whether access can justifiably be denied unders.1.

Keywords: Canadian Charter, Freedom of expression, s. 2(b), right of access to government property
