What is SCC: R. v. St-Onge Lamoureux "Reliability" in an Approved Intrument?

Please carefully re-read what the Supreme Court of Canada said about "reliability" in R. v. St-Onge Lamoureux.

Please think about and discuss the following:

How does the SCC concept of scientific "reliability" fit Parliament's concept of technical "reliability" in section 320 of the Criminal Code of Canada?

If Parliament creates legislation that defines "reliability" in "technical" terms that do not fit science, is there a Charter section 7 violation?

Is Parliament so supreme that it can overrule science?
