What are the underlying principles that do or should influence our approach to the judicial review of administrative action and decision-making? Is there one principle that should predominate? All of today’s panels asked us to ponder “What is the goal of judicial review in Canada,” and “How do we best go about obtaining that goal in a principled fashion?” Arguably Canada does not have a unified theory of administrative law that drives and animates all of the different facets that make up Canadian administrative law.
