abstract

  • Recent decisions in Canadian Law suggest that it is evolving in a manner heavily influenced by American law. A recent Supreme Court decision uses the framework of prevailing law and superimposes the more stringent criteria enunciated in Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals, Inc. We trace this development, reviewing the intervening cases that have contributed, and conclude with a summary of the law as it stands today.
