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


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


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


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


Borowski does have legal standing to continue with this action
