. R. v. R.K.
In R. v. R.K. (Ont CA, 2023) the Court of Appeal considered witness 'demeanour' evidence:
 While reliance on the demeanour of witnesses should be approached with caution, it is not improper to consider demeanour in assessing credibility: R. v. Rhayel, 2015 ONCA 377, 324 C.C.C. (3d) 362, at paras. 85-89 and R. v. J.L., 2022 ONCA 271, at para. 6.. R. v. Staples
In R. v. Staples (Ont CA, 2022) the Court of Appeal briefly considered demeanour evidence:
 The starting point is that although its admission may be somewhat rare, there is no bar to the admission of demeanour evidence. It may be admitted where a witness has a basis for believing that an accused’s demeanour was unusual: R. v. Trotta (2004), 2004 CanLII 34722 (ON CA), 190 C.C.C. (3d) 199 (Ont. C.A.), rev’d on other grounds, 2007 SCC 49,  3 S.C.R. 453; R. v. Short, 2018 ONCA 1, 358 C.C.C. (3d) 337, at para. 54.
