New in This Edition
Dr. Botting traces the recent evolution of extradition law in Canada and its divergence east and west by examining every extradition appeal and judicial review judgment of the past three years as they have interpreted key decisions of the Supreme Court of Canada, including Ferras, Fischbacher and Anekwu. At the same time, he has winnowed out lower court decisions that no longer reflect the law. He focuses on the peculiarities of Canadian extradition law, including the fact that extradition is not reciprocal: Canada has its own unique definition of "double criminality" (any conduct that is criminal in Canada results in surrender for any number of foreign criminal offences in the requesting country) and accepts summaries of evidence by foreign prosecutors as "presumptively reliable" while almost universally declining to admit evidence tendered by the individual sought. Furthermore, Canada is far more concerned with honouring its perceived "international obligations" than it is with protecting individual rights.
