The Latest Word

The 'Latest Word' are topically-organized civil and administrative case extracts taken from the Ontario Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada since 2015, when I started reviewing all cases from those courts daily. In 2020 I added full coverage cases for the Federal Court of Appeal and the Ontario Divisional Court, effectively covering all major appeal courts in Ontario and Canada.

The result is a useful compilation of what you could say are the very latest, from the very highest in Ontario and Canadian civil and administrative law.

They present a rich judicial commentary. Judges - being inclined by nature to be thorough when deciding a legal point - usually refer to other cases that the courts are favouring on that topic. A single read of the larger 'Latest Word' topical files will put you more 'in the know' than most other reads of the same volume and time commitment.
