A List of Caselaw
Jurist Canada has created a Canadian Law Locator. The site features full-text retrieval and searching of everything from Canadian and provincial case law to legislation, online databases and an excellent collection of legal research tools. To use the site, searchers need only use the drop-down menus to search for the case or specific law they are looking for. Further searching capabilities will be introduced in the near future.

Supreme Court Chief Justice Antonio Lamer
All in the family Rock's amendments to the Judges Act seem tailor-made for Lamer and Arbour. (1996 10 28) (The Alberta Report is no longer being published, and their website is no longer functional.

Rumblings of a counter-revolution (1998 01 19)
Alberta's justice minister blames politicians for the rising tide of judicial activism. Even the criminally insane enjoy a new freedom. (The Alberta Report is no longer being published, and their website is no longer functional. The article will be scanned and published here as soon as the time required for that can be made available.)
Justice Antonio Lamer of the Supreme Court demanded that such perpetrators be "protected from arbitrary detention," and that they be released from protective custody..."
Chief Justice Lamer granted an audience to the Ottawa Citizen last April to declare: "Thank God for the charter." He admitted that the charter has given the court an enormous power, but then shrugged,
"That's [parliament's] doing, not ours. [It] might be, well, that the elected [representatives] really didn't know what they were doing."
Chief Justice Antonio Lamer has presided over an unprecedented expansion of the Supreme Court's power and influence. His justices have struck down laws right and left, and made rulings which affronted common sense. Faced with growing criticism, Mr. Justice Lamer now pleads for an end to 'judge-bashing.'
