Nova Scotia, Canada

The following excerpt is from R. v. Goodwin, 2016 NSSC 283 (CanLII):

With respect to s.8 of the Criminal Code, the accused was searched incident to arrest and as the arrest was lawful, I find the search incident to have been lawful within the scope of Gouthier v. Langoir, 1991 SCR 158. Accordingly, there is no s.8 breach made out.
