Event description

Description

For Alberta lawyers, consider including this course as a CPD learning activity in your mandatory annual Continuing Professional Development Plan as required by the Law Society of Alberta.

In April 2018, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that the government of New Brunswick was entitled to fine retired Gerard Comeau $292.50 for buying and transporting several cases of beer across the Québec-New Brunswick border.

At the heart of the case was the proper interpretation of s. 121 of the Constitution Act, 1867, which provides that "All Articles of the Growth, Produce or Manufacture of any one of the Provinces shall... be admitted free into each of the other Provinces."

Why did the Supreme Court of Canada uphold provincial restrictions on trade, and what are the implications of Comeau going forward? Join the Runnymede Society- Lawyers' Chapter for a discussion of the case with Malcolm Lavoie, Assistant Professor at the University of Alberta Faculty of Law, counsel for the intervener Artisan Ales at the SCC hearing, as well as Howard Anglin, Executive Director of the Canadian Constitution Foundation.

Tuesday, June 26th from 6:00-7:30 pm. Light food and beverages will be served.
