Abstract

Judicial interpretation of the Criminal Code provisions, sections 464 and 484, relating to re-election for trial, has become increasingly restrictive. Through a thorough historical analysis of the relevant case law, the author demonstrates that the right to ap ply to re-elect has, in certain circumstances, been virtually removed in Alberta. Criticisms of the present trend are offered, followed by proposals for reform.
