Her Majesty the Queen v. Stéphane McRae (May 21, 2013)
Case # 34743
While in prison awaiting trial for trafficking in narcotics the respondent and another person conspired to attack the Crown prosecutor. They also conspired to attack the police investigator and four witnesses. After finding out about this plan, the investigators decided to place a listening device on another inmate. The respondent was charged with seven counts of conveying a threat to cause death or bodily harm. At trial, the Crown entered the respondent’s remarks into evidence. The main issue is that the threatening remarks were made in a place where it is assumed that confidentiality exists.
