I reported on the substance Supreme Court of Canada’s Vancouver Sun decision from last Thursday here, but also have to say how much I liked Bastarache J.’s opening line:
Information is at the heart of any legal system. Police investigate crimes and act on the information they acquire; lawyers and witnesses present information to courts; juries and judges make decisions based on that information; and those decisions, reported by the popular and legal press, make up the basis of the law in future cases.
Right on! Now all this blog needs is a theme song.
