The only publication of its kind, the annual CJFE Review of Free Expression in Canada looks at major free expression issues and developments in Canada each year. The Review features in-depth analyses, as well as an annual report card evaluating Canadian institutions and their handling of free expression issues, and a national poll of Canadian opinions and concerns about current free expression issues.

After an election, Canadians question the ability of the new government to balance national security with their own privacy and free expression rights.
