Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, et al. v. Attorney General of Quebec, et al.

Posted on

This case concerns the constitutionality of restrictions on media access to Quebec courts imposed by Quebec judges and Quebec’s Minister of Justice. The rules ban the broadcast of court recordings, limit interviews to designated areas, and prevent reporters from following people with cameras and microphones. The BCCLA argued that the public is entitled to access to information about our courts and the proceedings within them and that the restrictions violate Charter rights to freedom of expression and freedom of the press.
