Purpose: To remind the Court, "thing 1" in 258(1)(c) is unconstitutional under Charter 11(d) (R v St-Onge) but is saved by section 1. To remind the Court that 258(1)(c) is saved by section 1 because of Parliament's purpose which is weight consistent with scientific reliability. To demonstrate to the Court that the SCC in St-Onge relied on the paper by Brian Hodgson. To bring that paper before the Court and make it an exhibit. To ask the government scientist to concede the def
Purpose: To obtain admissions respecting the inadequacy of ATC / CFS recommendations in requiring "stability of metrological characteristics" over time. To obtain admissions that the Diagnostics test function only checks stability over a few seconds at best, not over weeks, months, or years following calibration by the manufacturer. To underline the concept of "over time" in Hodgson's definition of "reliability". #Hodgson #reliability #durability #metrologicalcharacteristics
Purpose: To introduce the concept of "calibration interval" To obtain admissions as to the importance of calibration interval in the international scientific literature To obtain an admission that neither the ATC/CFS nor the manufacturer mandate a calibration interval for approved instruments, though the manufacturer so specifies for ASDs To introduce some international standards on reliability including ISO 17025 To introduce the concept of "uncertainty growth" To connect "
Purpose: To separate the concepts of "calibration" from "control checks" To clarify that "calibration" is something that happens at the factory, not at time of use by a qualified technician To clarify that control tests at time of testing are simply a verification (to use the CFS scientist's words) that calibration hasn't changed over time (note Hodgson concept of "over time" in his paper referred to in St-Onge) #calibration #controltest #verification #overtime
