February Presentation

Legal Actions Against the Crown and Governments
Rex non potest peccare (“The King can do no legal wrong”]

Presenter: Jim Conway

Are governments above the law (just because they happen to have a majority in Parliament or a provincial legislature)? Is the Crown or a government immune from civil suit or criminal prosecution? Can you sue the government for its infringement of your legal rights? Or to protect the environment?
