Third Party Litigation Funding: A New Gold Rush?

Third-party litigation funding (TPLF) has become a steadily growing practice in recent years, as more and more parties are bringing lawsuits to court with the financial help of large hedge funds or specialized commercial companies. In this episode, we explore this new judicial practice further by speaking with Professor Jasminka Kalajdzic, director of the Class Action Clinic at Windsor Law School, and Me Neil A. Peden, litigator at Woods LLP, about his upcoming case 9354-9186 Québec inc. v. Callidus Capital Corp. This is the first case dealing with TPLF to be litigated at the Supreme Court of Canada. Since the recording of this episode, Me Peden has won his case, shedding further light on this emerging practice. Ce podcast est bilingue et a été réalisé par Nathaniel Reilly et Victor Vauclair, membres juniors de la RDM. Produit par Talia Huculak, Rédactrice des podcasts de la RDM.

The Eye in the Sky: Facial Recognition Technology and the New Surveillance State

Facial recognition technology is increasingly being used by law enforcement across Canada. However, law enforcement has not always been transparent about its use. With little to no law currently regulating this technology, privacy advocates insist that Canadians should be concerned. In this episode, we explore these issues by speaking with Ignacio Cofone, assistant professor at the Faculty of Law of McGill University, and Andrea Slane, associate professor at the Faculty of Social Science and Humanities of the Ontario Tech University. This podcast is by Lexi Michaud and Alicia Krausewitz, board members of Volume 65 of the McGill Law Journal. Produced by Talia Huculak, podcast editor of Volume 65 of the McGill Law Journal.

Des robots en toges

L’intelligence artificielle (IA) est présentement au centre d’une profonde transformation technologique. D’aucuns croient également que l’IA façonnera la façon dont nous administrons et dont nous rendons la justice en permettant l’introduction de systèmes décisionnels automatisés dans l’administration publique. Mais cela sera-t-il pour le pire ou pour le mieux, et comment s’assurer que nous introduisions et utilisions cette technologie de façon responsable ?

Cannabis Legalization at the Frontier

By signing Bill C-45, Canada became the second country in the world to legalize the recreational use of cannabis. Subsequent news coverage raised concerns about the potentially negative effects of legalization for Canadians, especially those crossing the US-Canadian border. In this podcast, we explore the practical implications of cannabis legalization, examining emerging issues related to workplace safety, privacy, property rights, the constitutional division of powers, and what Canadians can say to border officers if asked about cannabis use. We will hear from Me Joël Dubois, a practicing lawyer at Perley-Robertson, Hill & McDougall LLP and co-developer of the University of Ottawa’s Cannabis Law course. We will also hear from Mr. Henry Chang, a Toronto-based immigration lawyer and partner at Dentons. This podcast is produced by Talia Huculak and Lauren Weaver, associate editors for Volume 64 of the McGill Law Journal.

Smart Cities: Who Owns the Data?

The city of Toronto is currently working with a private company to develop a “smart city”—a neighbourhood that incorporates the collection of big data into its urban design. Since its inception, the project has inspired debate about how data generated by the public/private partnerships ought to be used. In this podcast, we consider the implications of some of these questions, and ask who should own the data and intellectual property generated from projects that rely on both public and private investment. We will hear from Teresa Scassa, Canada Research Chair in information, law and policy at the University of Ottawa, and Natalie Raffoul, an IP lawyer called to the bar in Ontario with a practice that focuses on procurement, licensing, and other IP issues. This podcast is produced by Andrea Salguero and Adam Casey, editors for volume 64 of the McGill Law Journal.

Causing a Comeau-tion, Part Two

Part one of Causing a Comeau-tion explored an attempt to break down interprovincial trade barriers in Canada through the use of litigation. In part two, we consider the consequences of the case. The Supreme Court ruled that the existing barriers to the sale of alcohol across provincial borders do not violate the constitution. While the case might initially appear to be a straightforward defeat for the litigants, the case could lead to other types of victories that prove it to be an example of successful legal mobilization. We get back in touch with Howard Anglin and Professor Christopher Manfredi, who share their thoughts on the decision and what its ultimate outcomes could be. This podcast is by Adam Casey, Podcast Editor for volume 64 of the McGill Law Journal.

Causing a Comeau-tion, Part One

“Free the Beer!” It’s become a rallying cry across Canada, largely thanks to a legal challenge brought before the Supreme Court in 2017 concerning the transfer of alcohol across provincial borders. In R v Comeau, the Court considered the constitutionality of interprovincial trade barriers on the sale of alcohol following an appeal brought by Gerard Comeau, a man who was fined for transporting alcohol from Quebec to New Brunswick. In this episode, we examine the struggle to break down interprovincial trade barriers, as well as the institutional and political pressures that make litigation the best (and perhaps the only) way to do it. McGill political science professor Christopher Manfredi tells us about legal mobilization, the process of using litigation to push for a policy goal. We also speak with Howard Anglin, Executive Director of the Canadian Constitution Foundation, who explains why the CCF decided to support Mr. Comeau’s case and what they hoped to achieve. This podcast was created and produced by Adam Casey and Emma Noradounkian, editors for volume 63 of the McGill Law Journal.

Justice pour les yézidies

La découverte des fosses communes à Sinjar en Iraq et l’ampleur des crimes commis par Daesh contre les minorités religieuses soulèvent d’importantes questions sur la ou les façons dont la justice peut être servie lors d’atrocités de masse telles que commises à l’encontre de la minorité yézidie. Pour nous entretenir sur le sujet, nous avons eu le privilège de rencontre le Professeur Payam Akhavan et Dr. Barzan Barzani de la Faculté de droit de McGill. Professeure Akhavan a été récemment désigné pour mener l’établissement d’une truth commission pour les yézidies. Dans le cadre de son sujet de recherche pendant son post-doctorat, Dr. Barzani a interrogé des centaines de victimes des crimes commis contre les yézidies. Ce podcast a été réalisé par Sofia Brault et Tiran Rahimian, rédacteurs juniors de la RDM. Produit par Sofia, Tiran et Emma Noradounkian, Rédactrice des podcasts de la RDM.

Über Boss: Emploi et travail autonome à l’heure des nouvelles technologies perturbatrices

Précarité ou flexibilité? Barry Eidlin, Professeur de sociologie à l’université McGill, et Me Marc-Antoine Cloutier, avocat pour RTAM-Métallos, nous aident à mieux comprendre les nouvelles dynamiques du droit de l’emploi dans le contexte de l’économie de partage au travers des activités d’Uber au Québec. Ce podcast bilingue explore également l’impact des innovations technologiques sur les travailleurs, et les tensions existantes avec des cadres législatifs soi-disants rigides. L’innovation doit-elle nécessairement se faire au détriment des acquis sociaux et au prix d’entorses aux règles de droit? Comment accomoder les différents acteurs, qu’ils soient innovateurs, consommateurs ou travailleurs? Ce podcast a été réalisé par Francis Langlois et Alexis Leray, administrateurs juniors de la RDM. Produit par Francis, Alexis et Emma Noradounkian, Rédactrice des podcasts de la RDM.

Willfully Discriminatory? The Ability to Discriminate in Testamentary Dispositions

Should you be able to discriminate in a will? In 2016, the Ontario Court of Appeal ruled in Spence v BMO that if someone has made a will and their intention is clear, then no one can really challenge that will. At first glance, this sounds reasonable; people should be able to do what they want with their property when they die, but what if their will is being used in a discriminatory way? We spoke to McGill University Professor Angela Campbell and wills and estates practitioner Ian Hull about testamentary freedom and whether courts are willing to balance this concept with protections against discrimination. This podcast is by Karine Bédard and Meghan Pearson, Editors for volume 63 of the McGill Law Journal.   Produced by Karine, Meghan, and Emma Noradounkian, Podcast Editor for volume 63 of the McGill Law Journal.
