1. Is it appropriate to cite case law in my affidavit ?
You can swear that anything is true (so long as it is true), but it is generally unhelpful.

2. If not, how do I bring the case law to the Justice's attention ?
The best option is by preparing a factum.

Otherwise, you can prepare a book of authories and file it in advance of your motion, or to bring the case with you to court. Either way, you will have provided the case to opposing counsel beforehand. A prudent litigant would highlight the sentences that are relevant or will be referenced.
