On this long overdue episode of the podcast, Hilary Young, Oliver Pulleyblank and Robert Danay are joined by Professor Paul Daly of the University of Ottawa (and the influential Administrative Law Matters blog) to discuss the recent decision of the UK Supreme Court in Miller, R (on the application of) v The Prime Minister [2019] UKSC 41 (also known as the Case on Prorogation).

The discussion touched on a number of related cases on prorogation and the justiciability of perogative powers in Canada including:

Guergis v. Novak et al, 2012 ONSC 4579

Black v. Canada (Prime Minister), 2001 CanLII 8537 (ON CA)

Galati v. Canada (Governor General), [2015] 4 FCR 3

Hupacasath First Nation v. Canada (Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada), 2015 FCA 4

The discussion also touched on the news media's coverage of Lady Hale (and her unusual brooches).
