Appeal-Judicial Review - Reasons - Citing Law. R. v. Bakal
In R. v. Bakal (Ont CA, 2023) the Court of Appeal commented on when a judge need not cite precedent:
 I disagree. An experienced trial judge like this one is presumed to be conversant with legal principles routinely applied which include the W.(D.) principles and their application. The court is not obliged to self-instruct on those principles: R. v. Daguio, 2018 ONSC 1510 at para. 11.
