CCLA was granted leave to intervene in Dwayne Alexander Campbell v. His Majesty the King.  Campbell concerns one’s reasonable expectation of privacy in personal and private communications in a criminal context. CCLA’s central interest in this appeal is that it engages the issue of the proper application of the principles that underly the right to be left alone by the state as well as the key privacy issue of content neutrality. This issue falls squarely within the CCLA’s mandate of promoting and protecting individuals’ rights to privacy and freedom from state interference.

CCLA is grateful to be represented pro bono on this intervention by Nader Hasan and Alexandra Heine of Stockwoods LLP.

CCLA’s factum can be read here.
