This is the twelfth 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 edited and updated.

The following major new Supreme Court rulings are considered:

  • Villaroman S.C.C.(circumstantial evidence; rule in Hodge’s case)
  • Bradshaw S.C.C. (corroboration for hearsay admissibility)
  • Bingley S.C.C. (drug recognition experts)
  • Durham Regional Crime Stoppers S.C.C. (informer privilege)
  • Barton Alta.C.A. (sexual assault stereotypes and dated jury instructions)
  • Brissard Ont.C.A. (motive in sexual assault cases)
  • Nero Ont.C.A. (spousal privilege)
  • Hirsch Sask.C.A. (Facebook messages)
  • Abbey (no. 2) Ont.C.A. (expert evidence)
  • Falconer N.S.C.A. (admissions)
  • MacIsaac Ont.C.A. (collateral facts)
Attention is also given throughout to many significant rulings by trial judges, including the sexual assault acquittal in Ghomeshi and Parliament’s response in Bill C-51.
