Litigating Canada’s Environment: Leading Canadian Environmental Cases by the Lawyers Involved
William A. Tilleman and Alastair R. Lucas
“This key environmental law text will provide the reader with a unique focus on leading judicial cases in major environmental law areas including climate change, the intersection of environmental and energy issues, aboriginal rights and the environment, energy facilities (pipeline regulatory decisions), environmental impact assessment, public inquiries and much more. The chapter authors are the lawyers and legal professionals who were involved in the early stages of each case and throughout the course of the litigation which makes them especially qualified to comment on the material. In each chapter, the authors discuss the broader context of cases and litigation strategy that was used in the case under discussion. This discussion is an informative and instructional reference for environmental litigators, regulatory lawyers, policy makers, environmental law professors and law students as they work in similar areas and on similar cases.”
Challenging the Validity of Wills, 2nd Ed.
Ian M. Hull and Suzana Popovic-Montag
“This work details the process for the appointment of the estate trustee with a will, and at what stages the will can be attacked. The substantive grounds for challenging the will’’s validity are covered including undue influence, fraud, lack of testamentary capacity, suspicious circumstances and improper execution of the testamentary document. The appendices contain a complete selection of estates forms under Ontario’s Rules of Civil Procedure for use in contentious estates proceedings. The authors provide guidance for compelling the reluctant executor to produce the testamentary document, for revoking the appointment of the estate trustee where fraud has occurred, for making a claim against the estate, and for the appointment of an administrator pending the outcome of the litigation. Practice tips are also provided.
This new edition reflects a more nuanced understanding of the practical effects of the estate rules 74 and 75.
There has also been 8 new chapters introduced to the new edition:

The Evolution of the Provincial Court of Saskatchewan
Amy Jo Ehman
“The Provincial Court of Saskatchewan was created in 1978. It was the modern evolution of a court system in Saskatchewan dating back to its territorial days, and a progressive advancement in the dignity, jurisdiction, and autonomy of the court. But the path forward was not easy. The introduction of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms in 1982 changed the relationship between provincial governments and judges of their Provincial Courts, leading to a string of legal battle across the country that began in Saskatchewan and culminated in a landmark decision of the Supreme Court of Canada affirming the principles of judicial independence and the rule of law. Today, those early challenges are the bedrock on which was built a caring, dynamic, and independent “people’s court” that honours its past and meets the challenges of the future.
This publication was commissioned by the Saskatchewan Provincial Court Judges Association with the support of the Law Foundation of Saskatchewan, to mark the 40th anniversary of the Provincial Court of Saskatchewan.”
