Case # 36017
Savdip Sanghera v. Her Majesty the Queen (March 19, 2015)

At issue is the Charter right to be tried within a reasonable time. The appellant was convicted of unlawful possession of a restricted firearm and of unauthorized transfer of a restricted firearm. A period of approximately 36 months elapsed between the time the appellant was charged and the time his trial concluded. The appellant argued that the delay infringed on his right to a timely trial. A majority of the court of appeal dismissed the appeal with one judge dissenting.
