Abstract

No topic related to the 20th anniversary of the Charter has inspired more comment than the role of the Canadian judiciary. Under the Charter courts must explicitly balance legislative goals against constitutional rights and freedoms. It seems that Canadian courts make important decisions more than they once did. It therefore matters more than ever whether a court's judgment is authoritative.
