The authors review and comment on the past year’s case law in several areas including Aboriginal law, contractual interpretation, corporate governance and shareholder rights, employment and labour law, environmental law, utility regulation,
constitutional law, and selected developments in civil procedure. Specific topics addressed include the duty to
consult, plans of arrangement, the duty of good faith in contractual relations, environmental claims upon insolvency, and the constitutionality of federal climate change legislation. For each case, some background information is given, followed by a brief explanation of the facts, a summary of the decision, and some commentary on the outcome.
