LES PERSPECTIVES EN DROIT CIVIL QUEBECOIS DE LA REFORME DES REGLES RELATIVES A L'EFFET DES DECISIONS
AbstractThis article reviews the new provisions in the law of Québec with respect to the recognition of foreign judgments and sets out the appropriate policies in this area of the law. The writers reveal some potential problems as well as reviewing those already in evidence. They suggest some desirable changes and examine their implementation both within and outwith Canada. The authors continue with a review of the alterations to the law brought about by the constitutionalization of conflicts of laws by the judgments in Morguard and Huntand the importance for Québec of the positions adopted by the Uniform Law Commissioners in 1991 and those proposed in 1994. The writers note that these positions only partially address the problems they have identified and they prefer a multilateral initiative based upon ideas developed in the negotiations at the Hague and they support Canada's active participation therein.
