Litigation Year in Review 2017
The Litigation Year in Review for 2017 is the second time that the Attorney General of Canada published a report on the litigation decisions and strategies used on behalf of the Government of Canada. This year’s report highlights some of the litigation positions we took in the course of 2017 and focuses on four main themes: compensating for past wrongs, maintaining our commitment to human rights and the Charter, defending our national security, and intervening before the courts in the public interest. These themes are situated within a greater narrative around: 150th anniversary of Confederation, the 35th of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and the 35th anniversary of section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982 and its recognition of the rights of Indigenous People’s. the litigation year in review also concerns itself with protecting national security, and making sure Canadians are aware that their rights are protected and not subject to the whims of the government that is in power.
