Summary:
"Against Judicial Activism argues that the courts (especially the Supreme Court) have subverted the judicial process in the name of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. For instance, the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal and Supreme Court read a ban on discrimination on the ground of transsexualism as being part of the province's human rights code."--Jacket.
