This case law review benefitted greatly from the work done in the 2010 Bill C-2 Case Review (Bala et al. 2010), as well as the contribution by Andrew Guaglio, Articled Student; consideration of an unpublished paper by Meghan Butler, Articled Student for the Ministry of Justice 2008; and consideration of the text Joan Barrett, Balancing Charter Interests – Victims' Rights and Third Party Remedies (Toronto: Thomson Carswell, 2008 – looseleaf, Release #4), Chapter 3.
