- Arguing and filing against evidence that was obtained in direct violation of your Charter Rights.Law enforcement sometimes obtain evidence in a manner that violates a person’s Charter Rights. When this occurs, the evidence cannot be used against the person and can be eliminated from the case.
- Challenging the validity of consented searches and searches that violate search warrants.The police cannot search a person or premises until they have produced a search warrant or obtain consent. Then they may only search the person or area for which consent was given or detailed in the warrant.
- Challenging law enforcement’s lack of or inappropriate use of probable cause.Probable cause give the police the right to identify an immediate medical emergency, state of duress, or other emergency situation to allow them to enter premises or search a person. The police tend to abuse this power and use it inappropriately.
- Arguing polices use of the Highway Traffic Act to make illegal stops and searches. The Highway Traffic Act empowers the police to enforce traffic laws. However, police officers often use the Act as a means to pursue the investigation of other criminal offences, no`t directly related to violations of the Highway Traffic Act.
