Donald Songer, Susan Johnson, C. L. Ostberg and Matthew Wetstein Law, Ideology, and Collegiality. Judicial Behaviour in the Supreme Court of Canada. Montreal and Kingston: McGill-Queen’s University Press, 2012. 223 pp.
1 At a November 2012 panel on the subject of HIV non-disclosure and criminal law in Canada held at McGill University’s Faculty of Law, four panelists explored the contours and consequences of two recent Supreme Court decisions (R v Mabior, 2012 SCC 47 and R v DC, 2012 SCC 48). During the question-and-answer period, an attendee expressed surprise that Canadian justices’ decisions in these appeals were unanimous. Interestingly, the historical record shows that justices’ decisions are, by and large, unanimous.
