  • R. v. Chung, 2020 SCC 8

    [1]                              Mr. Chung was acquitted of dangerous driving causing death under s.  249(4) [1] of the Criminal Code, R.S.C. 1985, c. C-46  (“Code ”). At trial and on appeal, there was no question that Mr. Chung drove in an objectively dangerous manner and committed the actus reus of the charged offence. However, the trial judge had a reasonable doubt about whether Mr. Chung had the requisite guilty mind or mens rea (2018 BCPC 133, 29 M.V.R. (7th) 122). On appeal, the sole issue was whether the trial judge committed an error of law in finding that Mr. Chung lacked the requisite mens rea (2019 BCCA 206, 55 C.R. (7th) 459).  The British Columbia Court of Appeal found such an error of law.  Reading the trial judgment fully and fairly, I conclude that there was an error of law and that this appeal must be dismissed.
