  • ROY MILLEN
Keywords: Constitutional Law

Abstract

The Supreme Court of Canada has affirmed the existence of unwritten constitutional principles and their application in both interpreting and testing the validity of legislation and government action. The author argues that the independence of the bar should be recognized as an unwritten constitutional principle. It is a foundational norm that is necessary for the maintenance of our constitutional freedoms.
