Not much is written about Québec legal developments in English, at least by bloggers. Québec Court of Appeal Justice Allan Hilton once lamented that it is a pity that most jurists outside Québec have not yet acquired the reflex to routinely consider judgments from Québec courts, unless they are translated. These pages hopefully will make a modest contribution for those interested in legal current events and Québec jurisprudence. On this note please bear in mind the Italian adage ‘traduttore, traditore’ – literally meaning ‘translator, traitor.’
