The Controlled Drugs and Substances Act is the legislation that governs drug prosecutions in Canada. It is prosecuted by different Crowns than Criminal Code offences. In other words, the Crowns who prosecute the accused are specialists in drug offences. You deserve to have counsel who have spent as much time and energy focusing on the same issues. We at WSGA all have experience challenging search warrants. We all have experience using the Charter of Rights and Freedoms to ensure that our clients' rights are fully protected. What is the point of having a right protected by the Charter if you don't have counsel who are experienced and skilled enough to defend that right? We work to ensure that the Crown is not allowed to use improperly-seized evidence in court.
More than that, we are experienced at challenging the other evidence drug prosecutors rely upon: we ensure that expert witnesses, eyewitnesses, even undercover police officers are tested through proper and vigorous cross-examination. In short, we at WSGA use all aspects of the law to fight for our clients.
