ARL Seeks Intervenor Status in Standard of Review Appeals

Advocates for the Rule of Law has brought a motion to intervene in Minister of Citizenship and Immigration v Vavilov, Bell Canada v. Canada (Attorney General),and National Football League v. Canada (Attorney General), which will come before the Supreme Court of Canada on December 4-6, 2018.

In its reasons granting leave to appeal, the Supreme Court stated as follows: “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, [2008] 1 S.C.R. 190, 2008 SCC 9, and subsequent cases”. If granted intervener status this will give ARL an opportunity to be heard in one of the most important administrative law cases since Dunsmuir.

ARL would like to thank its pro-bono counsel, Adam Goldenberg and Robyn Gifford at McCarthy Tétrault, for their hard work in putting together excellent intervention materials.
