Peter was best known as a leading authority on Canadian constitutional law, with the most academic citations in Supreme Court jurisprudence of any living scholar during his lifetime. Peter wrote several books, including Constitutional Law of Canada, the single most-cited book in decisions of the Supreme Court of Canada. And in 2004, Peter was a key figure in the Supreme Court's decision to legalize gay marriage in Canada in 2004.
