Senator Baker Returns

August 29, 2016

So episode 45 – 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?

Senator Baker returns to talk about the Standing Senate Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs’ interim report: Delaying Justice is Denying Justice: An urgent need to address lengthy court delays in Canada.

There is a problem with delays in the criminal justice system. Delayed cases harm: the innocent, victims, the community, and the quality of justice – memories fade, the innocent languish in jail, and victims are denied legal closure. So ya – delays are bad.

The Senate’s interim report identifies problems and more importantly looks for solutions. Senator Baker walks us through the findings.

Oh – Senator Baker also flatters me and basically volunteers to be a reference for a judicial application. But seriously there is not a more knowledgable, intelligent, passionate, and affable person than Senator Baker.

Emilie and I also talk about some other stuff too – but seriously – it is all about Baker!

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.
