Purposive Interpretation, Quebec, and the Supreme Court Act
In this brief paper, we examine the interpretive problem raised by Justice Nadon’s appointment. Because Binnie’s interpretation of sections 5 and 6 is one of the only discussions of this issue, and is likely to infl uence any subsequent legal analysis, we take his opinion as a starting point.
