Thomson Newspapers Company Limited v The Attorney General of Canada

The applicants were concerned with legislation purporting to place limits on the publication of the results of public opinion polls on surveys immediately prior to the holding of Federal elections. They sought a declaration that the Canada Elections Act, R.S.C. 1985, c.E-2, S. 322.1 as amended by S.C. 1993, c. C-19, S. 125, was of no force and effect in that it violates the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, R.S.C. 1985, Appendix II, No. 44, Sch.B, 5.2(b) and 3 and was not justified under section 1.
