Cases That Should Have Gone to the Supreme Court of Canada, But Didn’t! Episode 77

This week on Cases That Should Have Gone to the Supreme Court of Canada, But Didn’t! we look at the use of out-of-court statements to prove the identity of an accused sexual assailant. The complainant could not identify her assailant in court, but the judge admitted her out of court statements describing his identity as evidence for the truth of the fact that he was the perpetrator. A very interesting and important case, especially in light of the #MeToo era.
