In June 1986, LEAF completed a submission regarding interventions at the Supreme Court of Canada.
In its submission, LEAF highlighted many reasons for allowing intervener participation at the Supreme Court of Canada, including:
- The impact of constitutional law on the Court, causing it to move from being a decider of private disputes to a body ruling on broader issues
- The diversity of interests arising from public interest litigation
- The role of interveners in exposing the Court to information from a wide variety of sources and viewpoints, allowing the Court to be better equipped to assess policies that have a significant impact on the structure of society
- Improvement of the legitimacy of decisions made by the Court
