Solomon Friedman and Michael A. Johnston's article "A Supreme Court that is Granting Power to the State, Not the Mann" has been published in the Criminal Law Quarterly (at 60 Crim. LQ 555 (2013-2014)):
"... [R v Nedelcu and R v Aucoin] appear to revisit what was previously considered well settled law. Moreover, instead of providing clarity or further certainty in these areas of critical Charter jurisprudence, both judgments raise more questions than answers. Both judgments introduce uncertainty, added complexity and, in the end result, a retrograde approach to the rights of criminal defendants."
