New: Your Canada Constitution

NEW Resource:

lawnowCDNconstitThis issue covers the constitutional history of Canada in a big way.  Would be of major interest to Social Studies types.  I have attached the pdf of the issue. There is coverage of the latest court cases, including two judges who plagiarized their findings.  The Court observed, tartly, the “it is clear that judges…are not mere scribes, collators of evidence, collage artists, or way stations on the road to justice.”  Seems that even the high courts have issues copying –one copied 321 paragraphs out of 368 paragraphs from written submissions by one of the applicants.  Unfortunately, the 4 million dollar award given to a brain damaged infant was overturned because of the “crime” of copying.
