Roles and Responsibilities of the Attorney General
The (ttorney General has a uniBue role to play as a 1inister. :ne part of the (ttorney GeneralCs role is that of a ?abinet 1inister. In this capacity the 1inister is responsible for representing the interests and perspectives of the 1inistry at ?abinet+ while simultaneously representing the interests and perspectives of ?abinet and conseBuently the Government to the 1inistry and the 1inistryCs communities of interest. The (ttorney General is the chief law officer of the ,"ecutive ?ouncil. The responsibilities stemming from this role are unlike those of any other ?abinet member. The role has been referred to as Djudicial'likeD and as the Dguardian of the public interestD. 1uch has been written on the subject of ministerial responsibilities and the uniBue role of the (ttorney General. There are various components of the (ttorney GeneralCs role. The (ttorney General has uniBue responsibilities to the ?rown+ the courts+ the Eegislature and the e"ecutive branch of government. While there are different emphases and nuances attached to these there is a general theme throughout all the various aspects of the (ttorney GeneralCs responsibilities that the office has a constitutional and traditional responsibility beyond that of a political minister. The statutory responsibilities of the office are found in section 9 of the
 Ministry of the Attorney General Act 
. <ection 9 states The (ttorney General+Fa is the Eaw :fficer of the ,"ecutive ?ouncilHFb shall see that the administration of public affairs is in accordance with the lawHFc shall superintend all matters connected with the administration of justice in :ntarioHFd shall perform the duties and have the powers that belong to the (ttorney General and <olicitor General of ,ngland  by law and usage+ so far as those powers and duties are applicable to :ntario+ and also shall perform the duties and  powers that+ until the
Constitution Act, 1867 
 came into effect+ belonged to the offices of the (ttorney General and <olicitor General in the provinces of ?anada and Apper ?anada and which+ under the provisions of that (ct+ are withinthe scope of the powers of the EegislatureHFe shall advise the Government upon all matters of law connected with legislative enactments and upon all matters of law referred to him or her by the GovernmentHFf shall advise the Government upon all matters of a legislative nature and superintend all Government measures of a legislative natureHFg shall advise the heads of ministries and agencies of Government upon all matters of law connected with such ministries and agencyHFh shall conduct and regulate all litigation for and against the ?rown or any ministry or agency of government in respect of any subject within the authority or jurisdiction of the EegislatureHFi shall superintend all matters connected with judicial officesHFj shall perform such other functions as are assigned to him or her by the Eegislature or by the Eieutenant Governor in ?ouncil. D What follows is an overview of the various components of the (ttorney GeneralCs roles and responsibilities+ primarily as outlined in the (ct.
Chief Law Officer of the Executive Council (s. 5(a))
The role of chief law officer might be referred to as the (ttorney GeneralCs overall responsibility as the independent legal advisor to the ?abinet ' and some have even suggested that the role possibly e"tends to the Eegislature as well.
#
 
The importance of the independence of the role is fundamental to the position and well established in common law+ statutes and
tradition.
 
(s chief law officer+ the (ttorney General has a
special
 
responsibility to be the guardian of that most elusive concept
 ' the rule of law. The rule of law is a well established legal principle+ but hard to easily define. It is the rule of law that protects individuals+ and society as a whole+ from arbitrary measures and safeguards personal liberties. The (ttorney General has a special role to play in advising ?abinet to ensure the rule of law is maintained and that ?abinet actions
 
are legally and constitutionally valid. 
In providing such advice it is important to keep in mind the distinction between the (ttorney GeneralCs policy advice and preference and the legal advice being presented to ?abinet. The (ttorney GeneralCs legal advice or constitutional advice should not be lightly disregarded. The (ttorney GeneralCs policy advice has the same weight as that of other ministers.
Criminal prosecutions (s.5(d))
:ne of the most publicly scrutini-ed aspects of the (ttorney GeneralCs role is the responsibility for criminal  prosecutions encompassed in section 9 Fd and s. 5# of the ?onstitution (ct+ %=>. <ection 5# gives the provinces authority to legislate in matters related to the administration of criminal justice and thereby gives the provincial (ttorney General authority to prosecute offences under the ?riminal ?ode. The (ttorney General does not+ however+ direct or cause charges to be laid. While the (ttorney General and the (ttorney GeneralCs agents may provide legal advice to the police+ the ultimate decision whether or not to lay charges is for the police. :nce the charge is laid
 
the decision
 
as to whether the prosecution should proceed+ and in what manner+ is for the (ttorney General and the ?rown (ttorney. It is now an accepted and important constitutional principle that the (ttorney General must carry out the 1inisterCscriminal prosecution responsibilities independent of ?abinet and of any partisan political pressures. The (ttorneyGeneralCs responsibility for individual criminal prosecutions must be undertaken ' and seen to be undertaken ' onstrictly objective and legal criteria+ free of any political considerations. Whether to initiate or stay a criminal proceeding is not an issue of government policy. This responsibility has been characteri-ed as a matter of the
 
Attorney General acting as the ueen!s Attorney
 '
not as a 1inister of the government of the day.This is not to suggest that decisions regarding criminal prosecutions are made in a complete vacuum. ( wide range of  policy considerations may be weighed in e"ecuting this responsibility+ and the (ttorney General may choose to consultthe ?abinet on some of these considerations. 2owever any decisions relating to the conduct of individual prosecutionsmust be the (ttorney GeneralCs alone and independent of the traditional ?abinet decision making process. In practice+in the vast majority of cases+ these decisions are made by the (ttorney GeneralCs agents+ the ?rown (ttorneys. (n important part of the
Crown!s " and thus the Attorney General!s
' responsibility in conducting criminal prosecutions is associated with the responsibility to represent the public interest '
which includes not only the community as a whole
 and
the victim#
  but also
the accused.
