The most recent issue of The Lawyers Weekly
features an interview with constitutional scholar Peter Hogg on the upcoming 30th anniversary of the Canadian Charter
of Rights and Freedoms:
"On April 17, 1982, the Charter of Rights and Freedoms was signed into law. Constitutional scholar Peter Hogg says the Charter has been been good for Canadians— but with the caveat that the courts now have a bigger role in policy making. Hogg spoke with Shannon Kari, senior editor of The Lawyers Weekly, at the Toronto office of Blake Cassels & Graydon, where he is scholar in residence"
In the same issue, Lorne Sossin, dean and professor at Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto, writes that the Greatest tests of Charter may still be in future
