Russell Brown, "Vers une doctrine canadienne de la séparation des pouvoirs"

Lecturer: Mr. Justice Russell Brown, Supreme Court of Canada

Commentator: Prof. Dwight Newman, College of Law, University of Saskatchewan

Date: October 28, 2021


In his address, the Honourable Russell Brown will address the issue of the separation of powers and its importance in Canadian constitutional law. He will discuss the scope of the exercise of public power by the state and the need to circumscribe that power. The separation of public power can be seen as the raison d'être not only of constitutional law, but of all public law. The way in which this power is divided and distributed among different persons and institutions will be analyzed. Of course, many questions about this remain unanswered. The Canadian conception of the separation of powers continues to develop.
