( Charter / Freedom of Expression / Reasonable Limits)
B. was convicted of posting federal election results from Atlantic Canada on a website before polls were closed in the rest of the country, an offence under the Canada Elections Act.  The Court held that although the law infringes freedom of expression, it is justified under s. 1 of the Charter, since it ensures "informational equality" across the country during elections.
