Article by Jennifer Taylor published on Canadian Bar Association National Magazine website
In her latest article for the National Magazine website, Halifax research lawyer Jennifer Taylor takes Justice Russell Brown’s recent appointment to the Supreme Court as an opportunity to discuss the legacy of the Quebec Secession Reference.
Jennifer discusses the Supreme Court’s role in addressing the “existential questions” about Canada, as well as how the Secession Reference might act as a precedent for other fundamental questions that could come before the court. Jennifer writes, “…the most pressing of these questions will relate to righting the wrongs committed against Canada’s Aboriginal peoples, and reconciling Aboriginal interests with the Crown and other Canadian communities.”
