Abstract

In Blencoe, Justice LeBel’s first major administrative law judgment after joining the Supreme Court, he memorably quipped, “[N]ot all administrative bodies are the same. Indeed, this is an understatement. At first glance, labour boards, police commissions and milk control boards may seem to have about as much in common as assembly lines, cops, and cows!” It was clear a fresh voice had arrived — and at a moment of significant upheaval and flux for Administrative Law. But few predicted just how significantly Justice LeBel would transform key aspects of the field.
