This is the tenth edition of Evidence: Principles and Problems, a leading casebook on Canadian evidence law. Combining text and excerpts from leading cases with commentary and thought-provoking problem scenarios, the work continues to be a comprehensive resource on the law of evidence for both students and practitioners.


The following major new Supreme Court rulings are considered:

  • DAI (testimonial capacity of adults with mental disabilities)
  • White (drawing inferences from post offence conduct)
  • Laboucan (motive of accused to lie)
  • Edgar (exculpatory statements on arrest)
  • National Post (no class privilege for journalistic sources)
  • Sinclair (right to counsel respecting custodial interrogation)
  • Barros (informer privilege)
  • Prokofiew (comments on trial silence)
On the issue of identification of hearsay, the divided opinions of the Ontario Court of Appeal in Baldree as a better teaching vehicle than the Supreme Court's decision in Evans are included.
