Taking the Complexity Out of Canadian Statutory Interpretation
The interpretation of statutes in Canada has very broad applications in both the academic and practical arenas. As essential as the need for understanding how legislation is constructed, practitioners are often left wanting simple solutions that can be employed efficiently. Those seeking brief and sensible answers to basic queries or quick solutions to interpretation problems have few places to turn, especially when grappling with the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and, even more so, with international law - two areas that are rapidly becoming indispensable when dealing with statutory interpretation in Canada.
Author Stephane Beaulac, with his wealth of expertise in both statutory interpretation and international law, tackles these challenges head on in his new book Handbook on Statutory Interpretation - General Methodology, Canadian Charter and International Law.
