FactsEdit

  • British Man, Andrews, obtained a law degree from Oxford. Met all requirements to BC bar except that of Canadian citizenship
  • His action was that the declaration for citizenship violated s.15(1) of the Charter
  • Dismissed at trial but allowed on appeal

IssueEdit

  1. Does s. 42 of the Act violate s. 15 of the Charter, and, if it does, is it justified by s. 1?

DecisionEdit

Appeal dismissed. s. 42 violates s. 15 but not saved by s.1.
