Notwithstanding Rights, Review, or Remedy?


Gregoire Webber

Notwithstanding Rights, Review, or Remedy?
The Canadian Charter’s notwithstanding clause (section 33) makes exception to something, but what is that something? Received readings of the notwithstanding clause assume that it makes exception to rights or to judicial review. In this webinar, Professor Gregoire Webber will argue, instead, that the clause makes exception to the remedy that follows from a finding that legislation is inconsistent with targeted rights and freedoms.
