Abstract

This article canvasses the issues of competency, corroboration, hearsay and confrontation with respect to child witnesses, from both a legal and humanistic perspective. The authors survey the law from a historical perspective, through to recent changes in Bill C-15, in an attempt to reconcile the rights of an accused with those of child victims of sexual offences.
