The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the relevant sections of the Criminal Code are also included.

Also in this edition is the Crown Practice Memorandum on the Diversion of Mentally Disordered Accused. A table of cases has also been provided. 

Annotations cover caselaw from Ontario, as well as other jurisdictions, through to December 2021. Caselaw annotations range in length from a few sentences to the full text of the judgment. Commentaries are practical and to the point.
