What is the test for an appeal against a finding of guilty on two counts of sexual assault?

Alberta, Canada

The following excerpt is from R. v. Cottingham, 1977 ALTASCAD 73 (CanLII):

In our view this is a question of law as shown by the decisions in The Queen v. Lemire, The Queen v. Wild and other cases. Accordingly we allow the appeal and substitute a verdict of guilty on both counts.
