SCC Grants CIPPIC Leave to Intervene in Standard of Review Trilogy
CIPPIC has been granted leave to intervene in a trio of appeals in which the Supreme Court has invited submissions on standard of review:
The Court is of the view that these appeals provide an opportunity to consider the nature and scope of judicial review of administrative action, as addressed in Dunsmuir v. New Brunswick,  1 S.C.R. 190, 2008 SCC 9, and subsequent cases.
Minister of Citizenship and Immigration v. Alexander Vavilov, SCC No 37748, Bell Canada, et al. v. Attorney General of Canada, SCC No 37896 and National Football League, et al. v. Attorney General of Canada, SCC No 37897 will be heard together over a three day hearing from December 4-6.
CIPPIC is working with University of Ottawa alumni James Plotkin and Alyssa Tomkins. Justice Bastarache - co-author of the plurality decision in Dunsmuir, is of counsel. CIPPIC's intervention will focus on the rule of law and limits on deference in judicial review.
