Minister of Justice v Borowski, [1981] 2 SCR 575

Facts:

Borowski argued that the permission for the procurement of miscarriage is invalid because of s.2 of the Bill of Rights.

Ratio:

To establish status as a plaintiff in a suit seeking a declaration that legislation is invalid, if there is a serious issue as to its invalidity, a person need only to show that he is affected by it directly or that he has genuine interest as a citizen in the validity of the legislation AND that there is no other reason and effective manner in which the issue may be brought before the Court

Analysis:

There is no reasonable way in which that issue can be brought into court unless proceedings are launched by citizen

Holding:

Borowski does have legal standing to continue with this action
