DeMarco, Jerry, Executive Chair, Environment and Land Tribunals OntarioSeeking simplicity in Canada’s complex world of judicial review (October 31, 2018). Available at SSRN: https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3276335 (Paper is available in English only)

Abstract: This essay, written from the perspective of a current adjudicator and former litigator, proposes a two-step process for simplifying the standard of review framework for judicial review in Canada. First, the courts would establish a default framework that evaluates the reasonableness of tribunal decisions. Second, the legislatures would pass clear statutory language on when the default standard of review of reasonableness will not apply.
