I don't rave about #SCC decisions often, but the majority opinion of Martin J in #Boudreault deserves our attention. Mandatory victim fine surcharge declared invalid with immediate effect. A few thoughts to follow. scc-csc.lexum.com/scc-csc/scc-cs…
The mandatory victim fine surcharge, one of many Harper-era punitive laws, is cruel and unusual punishment contrary to s. 12 of the Charter, not saved by s. 1. #Boudreault
Martin J easily vanquished the argument put forward by some AGs that the mandatory victim fine surcharge (MVFS) was not "punishment" for purposes of s. 12. #Boudreault
