Something almost as exciting as the Euro has started today in Montreal: the merits hearings in the gun-registry litigation, which I have been covering extensively. As I am not in Montreal, I am totally dependent on the media for any information about it. Things are not very encouraging so far. The reports by Radio-Canada and La Presse do not give us any information on today’s argument. I suppose we’ll have to wait until the judgment comes out to learn anything of substance.
In case you’re looking for a refresher on what the fuss is all about, I have an overview of Québec’s application; my comments on it; some further thoughts; and a report and comment on the decision granting an interlocutory injunction to stay the destruction of the gun-registry data pending the hearing on the merits – which starts today.
