Since this ruling affects Human Rights Tribunals it likely can’t be good news

Tribunals can apply Charter rights, Supreme Court rules

“A landmark Supreme Court of Canada ruling has significantly widened the reach of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, handing a broad range of administrative tribunals the right to find Charter violations and create legal remedies.

In a 9-0 ruling on Friday, the court said that administrative tribunals – quasi-judicial bodies that hear cases involving everything from labour relations and school boards to human rights – are perfectly capable of applying the Charter in their fields of expertise.”

Hmmmmm. H/T Van Grungy
