Google Inc. v. Equustek Solutions Inc.

On December 6, 2016, the Supreme Court of Canada will hear oral arguments in Google Inc. v. Equustek Solutions Inc., a case questioning the authority of Canadian courts to impose worldwide restrictions on Internet search results. The British Columbia Civil Liberties Association (BCCLA) is intervening to ask the Court to carefully consider how these orders affect Canadians’ right to free expression, and ability to access justice.

The BCCLA is intervening to assist the Supreme Court in balancing the competing free speech and access to justice interests raised by the case. The BCCLA proposes an approach that seeks to limit any impact on free expression, while ensuring that Canadian courts can grant Canadian litigants meaningful remedies where necessary and appropriate.
