The Supreme Court of Canada released its judgment in R. v. Comeau (the interprovincial alcohol transport case) today. The court reversed the trial level decision from New Brunswick which had found that a provincial law restricting the possession of alcohol from outside the province was unconstitutional. The Supreme Court disagreed with the trial judge's approach, finding that the provincial restriction was valid. The full Comeau decision is here.
