The Not About SNC-Lavalin Edition
On this week's episode of the pod, Hilary Young, Robert Danay and Oliver Pulleyblank discuss:
- The recent decision of the Supreme Court of Canada in R v. Jarvis, 2019 SCC 10 in which the Court held that a high school English teacher ought to be convicted of voyeurism after he surreptitiously filmed his female students using a pen camera;
- Issues about redemption, rehabilitation and denunciation raised by the sentences of serial killer Bruce McArthur and mosque mass murderer Alexandre Bissonnette; and
- The recent decision of the Supreme Court of Canada in Orphan Well Association v. Grant Thornton Ltd., 2019 SCC 5 in which the Court found that a bankrupt oil company was required to pay for the cleanup of its abandoned wells before paying off its secured creditors.
In obiter dicta, Oliver discusses his recent trip to Palm Springs and Hilary unlocks some secret commands on Apple keyboards.
Rob's obiter, which is about a recent threat of litigation by a son against his parents for compensation due to the fact that he was born without his prior consent, is available exclusively to our Patreon supporters as a bonus segment.
