CHARTER OF RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS AND CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS
The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees certain rights and freedoms for all individuals in Canada. The passage of this law is fairly recent as it was only enacted in 1982 and gave rise to the most profound change to the criminal justice system in Canada. It is important to note that these rights are guaranteed against government action only.
As a criminal lawyer, it is imperative to have a deep understanding of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms as this law is a powerful tool that criminal lawyers often use to exclude evidence, demand a stay of proceedings, and dismiss criminal charges against an accused person. A seasoned lawyer with the knowledge, experience and expertise to challenge police and crown attorney conduct is critical to ensure the best possible outcome in your case.
Our Criminal Lawyers have successfully argued to exclude evidence, demand a stay of proceedings and dismiss criminal charges on behalf of many clients by arguing that a client’s particular right under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms was infringed and violated by the police.
