In this short comment, the author examines the recent case of Loyola in light of purposive constitutional interpretation. The author argues that Loyola turns a watchful eye back to purposive interpretation of the Canadian Constitution, after Dore failed to adequately analyze this important canon of constitutional interpretation. Refocusing on purposive interpretation, the author argues, will bring predictability, clarity, and consistency to the law of judicial review in Canada.
