R v Bastien
Response or Comment
Offences, Arson, Elements, Defences, Res judicata, Offences Punishable Under Different Statutes
Bastien is as neat an illustration as one could want of the current difficulties with fault elements in the Criminal Code, and in particular the dangers which arise from the lack of a general part and the inconsistencies in drafting style which are a result thereof.
