Abstract


The constitutionality of Canada’s Succession to
the Th rone Act, 2013 (Succession Act) will be

Quebec as an intervener, the Quebec Superior
Court will consider whether the Parliament of
Canada’s assent to a British statute is sufficient to
change the rules of royal succession for Canada.
