Criminal Court Delay Problem Compounded by Trudeau Government Delay Problem (March 6, 2017)

Senator Denise Batters challenges the Trudeau Government to act now to reduce criminal court delays. If the Trudeau Government continues to drag its feet on this issue, thousands of criminal cases could be tossed out of the Canadian justice system. This situation is dangerous and it is unjust.

The Trudeau Government has the power to immediately fill the 60+ judicial vacancies that exacerbate this problem. Instead, his Justice Minister has chosen to dismantle the appointment boards, only creating FURTHER delays. She has taken four months to appear before a Senate Committee on the issue of court delays. The criminal court delay problem is now being compounded by a Trudeau Government delay problem.
