Implementing Reconciliation: The Marshall Case
Brian McLaughlin

Current to: August 2010

At CLEBC’s 2010 Aboriginal Law Conference, Brian McLaughlin provided a fascinating look at the impact of the Supreme Court of Canada’s 1999 decision in R. v. Marshall. In Marshall, the Mi’kmaq established a treaty right to fish, including an ability to sell their catch. He discusses the immediate reaction to the decision and its ongoing implementation, including a case comment on Canada (Attorney General) v. Arsenault, 2009 FCA 300.
