The Supreme Court's recent decision in R. v. Starr indicates that in the future the traditional exceptions to the rule against hearsay will be subject to the requirements of the principled approach. This article considers the probable evolution of some of the traditional exceptions after Starr and argues that the principled approach should be reconnected with the underlying rationales for the exclusion of hearsay.
