Supreme Court of Canada twin bill: Court addresses US government profiling allegations and clarifies what’s required to prove discrimination

Sophisticated businesses operating in Canada often confront a dilemma caused by defence policy objectives of the United States of America. American law affects activities in Canada by, for example, controlling who can access defence-related technology (even if the immediate application of that technology is not a military application), currency transfers, and even airplane pilot training. But these US requirements, which are often backstopped by the threat of multi-million dollar fines, may spark allegations of discrimination under Canadian human rights legislation.
