Description

Power Without Law: The Supreme Court of Canada, the Marshall Decision, and the Failure of Judicial Activism written by Nova Scotia Justice Department lawyer Alex Cameron claims the original Supreme Court judgment in Marshall was incorrect. In the historic 1999 Marshall decision First Nations people were found to have a treaty right to fish and sell their catch. Although the author clearly states that he respects the justices of the Supreme Court and is not biased against First Nations, he blames the court's decision for the difficulties in the East Coast fishing communities between First Nations and commercial interests. The book contains the complete text for R. V. Marshall.
