Domestic Law Sample Clauses

Domestic Law. 136. The Supreme Court of Canada has explored the complexity of making comparisons in developing a line of authority concerning discrimination against individuals. In the Xxxxxxx case, the Court stated that the question of whether or not discrimination exists cannot be determined by applying a purely mechanical test to determine whether similarly situated individuals are treated in the same manner.85 Whether individuals are “similarly situated”, and have been treated in a substantively equal manner, depends on an examination of the context in 82 Declaration on International Investment and Multinational Enterprises, OECD/GD (97) 36, dated June 27, 1976 (Vol. IIA.2; Tab A-18). 83 As quoted in S.D. Xxxxx Inc. v. Government of Canada, Partial Award, November 13, 2000, at ¶248 (Vol. IIB.1; Tab B-6). 84 The Congressional Record cited in the FHWA Final Rule, as reviewed above in the section dealing with Congressional Intent behind the adoption of the Buy America measures, undoubtedly establishes the determinative role of the United Statessteel industry lobby group as being the true proponents behind the adoption of section 165 of the STAA of 1982. 85 Xxxxxxx v. Law Society of British Columbia, [1989] 1 S.C.R. 143, at pp. 163-176 (Vol. IIB.2; Tab B-14). There were, of course, many cases that followed in the wake of the Xxxxxxx decision. The Investor does not intend to review all the subsequent case law and limits itself to simply stating that the Xxxxxxx precedent was really the first to firmly capture the new meaning of “discrimination” to be applied in equal rights cases in Canada. which a measure is established and applied in the specific circumstances of each case. Such a context admits that equality rights provisions can come in aid to those who, like Xx. Xxxxxxx, have little political power or who can exert little political influence.
