Panelists, Mark Ertel, and Genevieve McInnes examine the factors counsel should consider at both the section 8 and 24 stages of a warrant challenge when assessing the evidence that you want (or don't want) before the motion judge. Panelists review the significance of full disclosure and the preparation of a paper-driven record, third party records applications in the section 8 context, the pros and cons of seeking to cross-examine affiants and sub-affiants, and the value of calling additional evidence at the 24-stage, for both Crown and defence. The panel also reviews tactical options that counsel should consider when arguing these types of applications.
