Administrative Fairness in Alberta

  • David Phillip Jones


This article discusses the recent development in the scope of the administrative law concept of the "duty to be fair" and the effect of that development on judicial review and on the need to characterize functions. The author examines in depth five recent cases, including Martineau v. Matsqui Institution Disciplinary Board (No. 2), decided by the Supreme Court of Canada in December 1979, insofar as they involve application of the concept of fairness.
