This is the eleventh 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.

This edition has been thoroughly re-edited and updated. The following major new Supreme Court rulings are considered:-

  • Hryniak v. Mauldin (summary judgment motions in civil cases)
  • Grant (principled approach to admissibility)
  • N.S. (sexual assault complainant seeking to testify wearing niqab face veil)
  • Baldree (implied assertions properly considered hearsay)
  • White Burgess Langille Inman (admissibility of expert evidence)
  • Sekhon (police witness must not exceed area of expert evidence)
  • Hart and Mack (Mr. Big evidence obtained by undercover police)

Important new lower court decisions are also considered throughout. We also address the abolition by Parliament by the Victims Bill of Rights Act 2015 of spousal incompetence rules and the retention of the law of spousal privilege.
