Andrea has been actively involved on a number of complex cases. She was a key member of the team at Stockwoods representing three Canadian citizens who sued the Canadian government for complicity in their detention and torture in the Middle East after September 11, 2001. Also, Andrea often acts for the CBC in defending it in defamation actions, and recently represented the Honourable Justice Patrick Smith as an intervenor in Girouard v. Canada (Attorney General), in which the Federal Court of Appeal confirmed that the Canadian Judicial Council is subject to the judicial review jurisdiction of the Federal Court. In 2012, the Canadian Public Health Association awarded Andrea the Canadian Public Health Hero award for her work in successfully intervening before the Supreme Court of Canada in the Insite case, which found that the Minister of Health’s refusal to grant an exemption from the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act for a safe-injection site, violated section 7 of the Charter.
