How provinces have tried to speed up the justice system since the

first_imgVANCOUVER – Provinces have brought in new procedures to speed up the justice system following last year’s Supreme Court of Canada ruling in the Jordan case, which set tight time limits for trials. Here’s a look at some of the initiatives provinces have undertaken:QuebecQuebec is investing $175-million over four years to recruit new judges, prosecutors, legal aid lawyers and support staff and create new courtrooms. So far, 449 positions have been filled and several new hearing rooms are operational. Justice Minister Stephanie Vallee recently announced an additional $9 million to hire 47 legal aid workers. The province has also launched a pilot program to allow for alternatives to incarceration, such as community service, in some minor offences.Vallee is also calling on the federal government to create eight new Superior Court justice positions and two additional Appeal Court judge positions, but Ottawa has not done so yet.OntarioOntario Attorney General Yasir Naqvi said in an interview the Jordan decision is a “game-changer” and a call to action for all levels of government. He said the province has added 13 judges, 32 assistant Crown attorneys and a number of other staff.Ontario has also focused on streamlining the front-end of the system with a number of initiatives aimed at better serving individuals with mental health issues, addictions and unstable housing. It has expanded provincewide a program that facilitates the release of low-risk accused into the community pending trial, as well as launched a new “bail beds” program that provides supervised housing for vulnerable accused. It has also developed a program to provide supports to Indigenous people who are accused of a crime.British ColumbiaB.C.’s Supreme Court recently issued new directions for so-called “mega-trials,” or large or complex criminal cases that have the potential to occupy a significant amount of court time or risk delays. The directions call for a case management judge to be appointed early in the process and for tight time limits for disclosure, pre-trial applications and the trial itself.Associate Chief Justice Austin Cullen said in an interview the court began reviewing complex trial procedures about 18 months before the Jordan decision. But he said the ruling helped “spur us on and made us realize that we’re doing something useful.”B.C.’s government tasked lawyer Geoffrey Cowper in 2012 with writing a report on its justice system, in which he identified a “culture of delay.” In November 2016, Cowper said B.C. was on the road to recovery. A major initiative he cited was B.C.’s use of administrative law to move tens of thousands of drunk-driving charges out of provincial court.Nova ScotiaChris Hansen, with Nova Scotia’s Public Prosecution Service, said the province is being “fairly aggressive” in dealing with Jordan. It has established a criminal justice transformation group with the sole purpose of addressing delays. Every criminal case has a “Jordan ticker,” so that when participants access material online, they can clearly see the number of months since the information was laid. Hansen also said the courts have increased their use of technology with video conferencing and electronic disclosure.SaskatchewanSaskatchewan’s Public Prosecutions said most cases in the province finish within the time limit and exceptional events are often the cause in the small number of cases that don’t. Nonetheless, it said it’s implementing further strategies to move every case along as quickly as possible. These include focusing on expediting disclosure, assessing cases as early as is workable, removing cases that do not meet the prosecution standard, and working to resolve cases as soon as possible.last_img read more
