The Supreme Court of Canada said it will not hear a Charter challenge that sought to enshrine Canadians’ right to access “grey market” satellite signals. The Supreme Court said Thursday it will not hear an appeal by former grey market satellite distributor Richard Rex, who had asked the court to fund his challenge of the Radiocommunication Act and a prohibition on accessing foreign satellite TV signals. “Mr. Rex took the position that the RCA provisions contravened section 2(b) of the Charter by prohibiting Canadian residents from accessing satellite television programming from foreign broadcasters,” a court summary of the case said. “He submitted that he lacked the financial resources necessary to pursue a Charter challenge and that without the order sought, an injustice would result as he would be unable to litigate a meritorious constitutional question of importance.” The court, which does not give reasons for decisions on whether it will hear cases, said it rejected Rex’s application to appeal with costs.
