THE OATLEY-MCLEISH GUIDE TO DEMONSTRATIVE ADVOCACY
By: Roger Oatley and John McLeish
The Court of Appeal, the highest court in Ontario, quotes from Roger Oatley’s book as authority in reversing a trial judge’s decision.
“The power of surveillance comes from its nature as “real demonstrative evidence – evidence from which the trier of fact can draw factual conclusions”, as John A. McLeish and Roger G. Oatley note in The Oatley-McLeish Guide to Demonstrative Advocacy (Markham: LexisNexis, 2011), at pp. 249-50.”
