Oliphant on Constitutional Interpretation

Announcing a guest-post by Benjamin Oliphant

Just a quick note to announce that Benjamin Oliphant, my esteemed co-author on two articles on the place of originalism in Canada and of many brilliant papers of his own (as well as a busy lawyer in his spare time), will shortly by posting his take on the discussion between Sébastien Grammond, Kate Glover, and yours truly regarding Parliament’s ability to require new Supreme Court judges to be bilingual by ordinary legislation. Mr. Oliphant focuses on the role of constitutional interpretation methods in this debate. I am very happy to host him, and grateful for his contribution to this conversation.
