Charter Conflicts : What Is Parliament's Role?.

Hiebert has highlighted the disturbing tendency of Parliament to play a passive and reactive role in the articulation of Charter values. While I disagree with some of Hiebert's conclusions and recommendations, I found her analysis lucid, engaging and thought provoking. This book constitutes a significant contribution to the study of Charter and judicial activism. Osgoode Hall Law Journal, Vol. 42, No. 189, 2004.

Janet Hiebert is Professor in the Department of Political Studies, at Queen’s University. She has been teaching in the Department of Political Studies since 1991. Her latest publication, with James B. Kelly, is Parliamentary Bills of Rights: The Experiences of New Zealand and the United Kingdom (Cambridge University Press, 2015).

Although the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is twenty years old, little is known about how it affects those who wield power, what influence it has on legislative decisions, or to what extent the government believes it should be constrained by Charter concerns. For most laws Parliament has the final word on how social policy is balanced against protected rights. Thus the extent to which legislation is sensitive towards rights depends on how those who develop, propose, and assess policy view the Charter. How influential are governmental legal advisors? How risk averse or risk tolerant are government ministers when pursuing legislative goals that may result in Charter challenges? How capable is Parliament in requiring government to justify and explain legislative choices that may impair rights? In Charter Conflicts Janet Hiebert examines these questions while analyzing the Charter's influence on controversial legislative decisions such as social benefits for lesbians and gay men, the regulation of tobacco advertising, the rules of evidence for sexual assault trials, the use of DNA for law enforcement purposes, and the rules for police searches of private residences. She questions the broadly held assumption that only courts are capable of respecting rights, arguing that Parliament shares responsibility with the judiciary for resolving Charter conflicts. She views the Charter's significance less in terms of the judiciary overruling Parliament than in the incentives and pressures it provides for public and political officials to satisfy themselves that legislation is consistent with protected rights.
