abstract
"As the first book dedicated to quasi-constitutional laws in Canada, this work provides a much-needed overview of the elements that unite the various rights-protecting laws that have received this designation from the Supreme Court of Canada. These laws comprise several categories of federal and provincial statutes, including human rights, access-to-information, privacy, language rights, and the traditional civil liberties, as well as a common law principle."--Provided by publisher.
