R. v. W.C. Provincial Court of Alberta (Calgary)
Client charged with possession of methamphetamine for the purposes of trafficking, possession of the proceeds of crime, possession of a prohibited weapon and a number of breaches of his recognizance. Ms. Urquhart submitted a Charter argument outlining how W.C.’s Charter rights were breached and that the seriousness of the breaches called for the exclusion of all the evidence the Crown was relying on (the drugs, money and weapon).
Result: On the morning of trial, agreeing with the argument outlined in the Charter notice, the Crown withdrew the charges against W.C.
