The more I talk to friends and family about my work, the more I’ve realized that there is a big gap in terms of what the general public knows and understands about how our criminal courts work. While we see stories in the news about crime in our community, or the latest laws that are being passed, most Canadians still don’t have a solid understanding of how our court system works.
This blog is meant to demystify criminal law: to shed light on some of its procedures (i.e. how does bail work?), limitations, and offences that some people don’t even know exist.
If you have any ideas of posts that you’d like to see, feel free to leave a comment, or send an e-mail to [email protected] I’d love to hear from you.
