Nice summary article by Dean Jobb, an associate professor of journalism at the University of King’s College in Halifax and author of Media Law for Canadian Journalists (Emond Montgomery Publications) on the six media cases the Supreme Court is going to hear this fall on media issues. Protection of sources, publication bans and libel are the areas in which the Supreme Court is likely going to give significent direction to Canadian media, and society as a whole.
