Justice Jonathan Keene Brunet, B.A., LL.B.

In Canada, ownership and use of firearms, weapons and explosives are subject to regulation under municipal bylaws, provincial and federal statutes, and regulations. In addition to regulatory controls, criminal sanctions are imposed against persons who violate Criminal Code and Firearms Act provisions with respect to failing to use and register weapons as required. This title examines the Firearms Act in its entirety with respect to licensing and registration of firearms and discusses the Criminal Code sections creating offences and imposing sanctions against persons who use firearms, weapons and explosives. Also covered is the statutory and regulatory control of weapons and explosives. Topics include:

  • Constitutional and Charter issues
  • Licences, registration certificates and authorizations for firearms
  • References and appeals
  • Part III of the Criminal Code
  • Sentencing considerations for firearms offences
  • Legislative context for weapons, explosives and dangerous goods
  • Rules governing the use of weapons and explosives
  • Modes of transportation
  • Mining and other underground operations
  • Civil liability for injuries

Erin A. MacKenzie, B.Sc., LL.B., M.B.A.

Laws to deal with the use, prevention and consequences of fire have existed almost as long as humankind's mastery of it. For today's lawyer, the impact of laws governing the enforcement of fire safety can be felt in any number of areas and on any number of files, from a matter of negligence or tort to a real estate transaction, criminal or by-law prosecution or nuisance claim. This title examines the regulatory framework for the use and prevention of fires in each province and territory, and provides a straightforward explanation of matters such as:

  • Powers and responsibilities of fire officials
  • Fire safety councils and committees
  • Fire emergencies
  • Explosive substances
  • Enforcement, including inspections, fire safety orders and appeals
  • Fire prevention in forests, parks and reserves
  • Controlled fires
  • Permits
  • Fighting fires
  • Investigations and inquiries
  • Criminal Code and other fire-related offences
  • Civil liability and costs

Dr. Donald Buckingham, LL.B., Dip. Int. Law, LL.D.

The law regulating food is drawn together from several areas of private law (including contracts, torts and property) and public law (including criminal, regulatory, administrative and constitutional law). Food safety and food quality concerns now link the farmer and the chef. Producers, consumers and their advisers need to understand the private law that assigns liability when things go wrong. They also need to understand the public law that encourages the industry to produce safe food by sustainable agricultural methods and sell it in fair and open national and international marketplaces. This title examines the law relating to the preparation, sale and marketing of edible substances in Canada. Topics covered include:

  • The regulation of food safety and quality
  • Food labeling
  • Relevant issues in tort and contract
  • Intellectual property concerns

Catherine Morin, B.Mus. (Hons.), LL.B.

  • The effect on intention of legal presumptions
  • Evidentiary issues surrounding the proof of gifts
  • Delivery of various types of gifts
  • Acceptance
  • Failure of gifts
