Quebec jurists, decry, absence of recognition, Quebec colleagues, judges, practitioners, academics, common law, provinces of Canada
Quebec jurists are sometimes want to decry, and justifiably so, the absence of recognition accorded the works of their Quebec colleagues by judges, practitioners and academics in the common law provinces of Canada.' In the field of criminal law this situation exists, even though one might have thought that practical pressures to present the latest argument on a general criminal defence or some aspect of criminal procedure would drive English speaking lawyers across linguistic barriers in search of solutions. Irene Lagarde's Droit pdnal canadien2 was the standard reference source for the francophone practitioner of Canadian criminal law for years, but went virtually unnoticed and uncited by courts outside Quebec even though it was in many respects superior to similar annotated criminal codes in daily use elsewhere in Canada.
