Eugene Harasymiw outlined the negative legal aspects of Bill C-18 and the d&d process. He quoted extensively the critical comments of some of the judges involved in the d&d cases. In particular, he referred to retired Justice Roger Salhany’s very critical assessment of Judge Andrew MacKay’s judgment in the Helmut Oberlander case.
