The Supreme Court of Canada Dec 11, 2001

Adding to everyone\'s excellent suggestions, may I suggest the Supreme Court of Canada\'s judgment database? Its bilingual, searches bring up judgments in both languages (in WPerf, Word, and HTML) and its just a matter of popping both versions and comparing.

Tip: for phrases, use this format

\"searchword-a 3w searchword-b\"

(meaning: searchword-a within three words of searchword-b)

For example: public 1w prosecutor
