AbstractIn this article the author examines the status of secondary picketing within Canadian law. Through a brief discussion of several cases and events, the author first examines the past and current states of secondary action in England and the United States. After a thorough description of the characteristics of picketing as the courts see them, and an examination of several cases relating to secondary picketing, the author then argues that there is a fundamental judicial antipathy to secondary picketing in Canada, and suggests that present common-law principles relating to secondary picketing are rife with confusion. In conclusion the author suggests that possible remedeies for such confusion lie in the judicial and legislative processes of law making, and examines the advantages and disadvantages of each.
