Habeas Corpus and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms

(p.479) Chapter 22 Habeas Corpus and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms
The Reality of International Law

Robert J. Sharpe

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides a brief outline of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms in 1982. It analyses the method of rights protection this charter mandates and evaluates how certain specific rights and freedoms guaranteed by the Charter relate to the subject of the law of habeas corpus. It suggests that this Canadian Charter has significantly enhanced the law-making powers of Canadian courts and has moved Canada in the direction of a due process model of criminal law.

Keywords:   charter, freedom, Canada, human rights, habeas corpus, Canadian courts, criminal law
