The Criminal Code changes regularly. Parliament is constantly adapting criminal law which translates into complex and sometimes strange outcomes. Defence lawyers, just like lawyers in all practice areas, regularly update their knowledge through research and training.
One of the ways Tom Rees & Company stays current is the Parliament of Canada website. The website allows you to search through bills that have not become laws yet.
For information about how your laws are made in Canada, check out the Parliament of Canada website.
