Duffy Not Guilty!
So episode 35 – a new record. But you know that right? Because you subscribe to the show on iTunes and have already rated and reviewed the podcast- right?
This week Emilie and I almost made it through the whole Duffy decisions – almost.
Spoiler alert – Mike Duffy was found not guilty of all charges last week. The decision was long, and a bit confusing, and really long.
So we dragged back peter Sankoff – star of episode 14 – to talk about the ‘ol Duff and help us understand what happened
Peter Sankoff is a Professor at the University of Alberta, Faculty of Law. He concentrates his teaching and research on legal issues surrounding the criminal trial process.
Peter worked as a law clerk for Claire L’Heureux-Dubé at the Supreme Court of Canada in 1996-97. He went on to work as Counsel in the Deparment of Justice (Human Rights Law Section) for two years before leaving Canada ….
Instead of shamelessness copying and pasting any more of Peter’s extensive bio I will just post some links.
Visit Sankoff’s webpage at petersankoff.com and follow the links to check out all of his work and thoughts on the Duffy trial.
Peter’s comprehensive paper The Worst $90,000 Ever Spent: 10 Questions About Mike Duffy, Nigel Wright, the Criminal Code and the Canadian Criminal Justice System.
And the follow-up: Still The Worst $90,000 Ever Spent: 10 More Questions About Mike Duffy, Nigel Wright, the Criminal Code and the Canadian Criminal Justice System
And check out the full Duffy decision: R. v. Duffy, 2016 ONCJ 220
We also have some new art – it is still new because it is way easier to just copy and past this section each week – from an awesome young designer Parker Mazerolle – serious he is crazy good – go check out his work.
