Who would have thought that the Supreme Court affirmed a sort of natural law jurisprudence?
Reference re Quebec Secession  2 SCR 217:
Our law's claim to legitimacy also rests on an appeal to moral values, many of which are imbedded in our constitutional structure. It would be a grave mistake to equate legitimacy with the "sovereign will" or majority rule alone, to the exclusion of other constitutional values.
I wonder if "heterosexual marriage" or "a right to private health care" counts as a "moral value."
