CCLA’s view is that the Charter of Rights and Freedoms requires the government to quarantine only where explicitly prescribed by statute, which ought to be narrowly construed, although less strictly construed in circumstances attaching to criminal law detention.
Furthermore, public officials must ensure that the quarantined have adequate living conditions and the effective right to counsel.
