AbstractThe article discusses a court case wherein Canada's oldest toy company Irwin Toys challenged advertizing restrictions in the courts. It happened before the arrival of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. In 1980, Irwin Toy advertized toys to children under 13 and was charged with 188 violations of the Quebec's Consumer Protection Act. This case was one of the first Charter freedom of expression cases to be heard by the Supreme Court of Canada (SCC).
