This week sees the BC Supreme Court issue a ruling in Blackmore v. British Columbia (Attorney General), 2009 BCSC 1299, that says once the AG makes a decision not to prosecute a criminal matter, that decision is final. The AG may not then have the matter further reviewed and decide to prosecute the matter. Especially not three times.

The ruling also has a very useful summary of jurisdictional issues and decision making powers.
