The main point(s) are in this quote from the story:
"The system makes it really hard to allege a violation of the Charter
based simply on a suspension from a position, loss of pay and the mere
fact you were charged for a crime; it's hard to argue that leads to a

"The government enjoys a significant level of immunity."
I tend to agree . . . if I get a traffic ticket and fight it (and
win), the crown isn't going to give me a lot of money for beating a
speeding ticket and pay for my day off work to fight it!

alive), Marie Henein and Donald Bayne to all work together on your
behalf, and the defence attorneys were all alcoholics, you might have a
chance . . .
