Access to care, access to justice : the legal debate over private health insurance in Canada by Colleen M Flood( )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in English and held by 1,666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exploring the role that courts may play in health care, this collection examines how this role is of crucial importance to the Canadian public and its governments. It also examines how the future of Canadian health care is likely to be determined both in the courts and in the legislatures, and scrutinizes how these changes affect Canadians. [Ed.] The catalyst for this book was a Supreme Court decision on whether banning private health insurance for services covered by the public system violated the Constitution. On June 9, 2005, the Supreme Court of Canada released its judgment in "Jacques Chaoulli and George Zeliotis versus the Attorney Generals of Quebec and Canada". Dr Chaoulli, a doctor who wanted to offer private health services, and Mr. Zeliotis, a patient who had been on a waiting list in the Quebec health system, argued that that Quebec's prohibition of private health insurance for services dovered by the public system violated both the Canadian and Quebec Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Parliamentary democracy in crisis by Peter H Russell( )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In November 2008, as the economic decline was being fully realized, Canada's newly-elected minority government, led by Conservative Stephen Harper, presented a highly divisive fiscal update in advance of a proposed budget. Unable to support the motion, the Liberal and New Democratic Parties, with the backing of the Bloc Québécois, formed a coalition in order to seek a no-confidence vote and to form a new government. In response, Conservative cabinet ministers launched a media blitz, informing Canadians that the opposition was mounting a "coup d état." Ultimately Governor General Michaëlle Jean allowed parliament to be prorogued, the coalition fell apart, and a budget was accepted by the House in January 2009. However, widespread public uncertainty and confusion about the principles of government evident during the crisis revealed a grave lack of understanding about the mechanics and legalities of parliamentary democracy on the part of Canadians

Administrative law in context( Book )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2018 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Administrative Law in Context, 2nd Edition is a collaborative work bringing together the varied perspectives of Canada's leading scholars in the field. Concentrating on the general principles of administrative law and the context in which administrative adjudication occurs, the authors convey a sense of how administrative boards and tribunals work in practice — for example, how decisions on budgets, staffing, websites, and translation can make the difference between justice and injustice; and how administrative law works differently in the politically charged context of public inquiries. In addition to critical analysis and theory provided by a team of leading academics, students are also given practical hands-on tips and checklists for those planning to practise administrative law. The second edition is completely updated in all chapters to include reflections on Dunsmuir as well as jurisprudence in the wake of Dunsmuir. There is a new section and fuller discussion on procedural fairness, and new chapters on Aboriginal issues in administrative law and the Federal Court's administrative law process, demonstrating how administrative law is grounded in the real world of decision making

"Public Law provides comprehensive coverage, in one volume, of topics that affect the practice of every lawyer and anyone studying the law: Charter litigation, federalism, Aboriginal law, public international law and administrative law. For practitioners with cursory knowledge of public law, experts wishing a refresher, and students requiring an overview, Public Law permits quick reference, without having to access the many treatises for each of the public law subjects covered. Public Law also serves as an excellent introduction to the core doctrines of public law for students and non-lawyers."--Pub. desc

"Civil Litigation by Professors Janet Walker and Lorne Sossin is a concise narrative of the key elements of the resolution of civil disputes in Canada. It covers all aspects of civil procedure and provides a useful pan-Canadian comparison of legislation and court rules from various jurisdictions.
