Alberta's Energy and Utilities Board and the Constitution of Canada

  • Nickie Vlavianos

Abstract

The author explores the jurisdictional ability of an administrative tribunal — specifically, the Alberta Energy and Utilities Board (EUB) — to decide constitutional matters. She focuses particularly on tribunal decisions relating to Charter rights and Aboriginal or treaty rights (s. 35(1)) and examines the recent decisions of Martin and Paul from the Supreme Court of Canada. The author concludes that for questions of law, the EUB has not only the option but the duty to consider constitutional questions.
