Title
The Criminal Code and the English Media in 19th Century Canada
Abstract
The author examines how penal codification was received and interpreted by media sources (English language newspapers and English language legal journals) in late nineteenth century central Canada. With respect to the legal journals, three were selected - two from Ontario (Canada Law Journal and Canadian Law Times) and one from Quebec (The Legal News). The three newspapers examined by the author representing either the conservative, liberal or radical label were: The Montreal Gazette (conservative), The Toronto Globe (liberal) and The Toronto Mail (radical). In examining what opinions were expressed, the author attempts to establish whether the focus was on codification or specific topics of the code as well as whether the reactions to the code, if any, changed after the journal's/newspaper's inception.
