Evolution
1. Parliamentary Supremacy
2. Bifurcated Parliamentary Supremacy
o Canada no longer united kingdom but divided kingdom, one level of government could
sue the other level of government, lieutenant governors and governor general
3. Constitutional Supremacy
o Post-Charter of Rights, 1982
o Charter limits parliamentary supremacy but does not eclipse it
E.g. If Parliament wanted to remove cameras in House of Commons, could do
so, media could not go to courts to argue against it
x Parliament can do anything they want in parliament
o Does not mean federal principle is gone, but qualifies it
Property and civil rights are provincial, but Charter can trump that

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
