R v Deutsch, [1986] 2 SCR. 2


D charged with procuring a person to have illicit sex w another (s.212(1)(a)). D conducted interviews with women assistants and told them who he chose who have to have sex with clients


What is the test to convict someone of an attempt?


Test for Attempts:
1. Need to look at relationship of the offence and the act
**a. Rewording of the unequivocal act theory
2. Proximity is relevant, taking into account time, location, and acts controlled by the accused that remain to be accomplished - What is important is the acts the accused took
**a. The fact that further acts are needed to complete the offence is not determinate of an attempt - Proximity is not determinative


That acts were an attempt – more then preparatory steps
