The twentieth anniversary of the enactment of the Canadian Bill of Rights is being celebrated at a time of great political uncertainty in Canada. The fundamental structure of Canadian federalism, if not its very survival, is the subject of heated debate. Much of the debate revolves around the aspirations of the provinces to gain a larger measure of legislative authority over economic and cultural matters, and their desire to have a greater input into the governing process at the federal level. Within the context of this debate, the role of the Supreme Court of Canada is a crucial element.
