    Can you explain intrinsic and extrinsic aids summarily? and the point of having them.

    Intrinsic aids are aids within the statute itself – examples include a definition section, the preamble

    Extrinsic aids are outside the statute – examples include books of authority, Interpretations Act, Hansard

    What’s the point? To assist judges to interpret exactly what a statute is trying to achieve where the statute itself is unclear
