Supreme Court Hearings - Attorney General of Canada, et al. v. Christopher John Whaling, et al.


Attorney General of Canada, et al. v. Christopher John Whaling, et al. (October 15, 2013)
Case # 35024

At issue in this appeal are aspects related to the Abolition of the Early Parole Act. When the respondents began serving sentences, accelerated parole provisions allowed for early parole after serving one-sixth of the sentence. The accelerated parole provisions were repealed after each respondent had been sentenced by the Abolition of Early Parole Act in 2011. The main question is whether changes to the parole process violate the Charter right not to be punished twice for the same offence.
