Re: The Nanaimo Three - Political Prisoners in Canada

As a good little legal amateur I've done a quick CANLII browse and from what (little) I can tell it looks like the issue of how bound judges are by their direct peers is shockingly open to debate. http://canlii.ca/t/24673 (From the Manitoba Provincial Court) seemed to be the best discussion of the v...

Re: The Nanaimo Three - Political Prisoners in Canada

It can't be just "struck down" regardless of your opinion, or mine, on the correctness of the decision. The decision stands unless overturned on appeal. A question for Fmotlgroupie. You said; It's not even binding in BC. I don't know if the Crown will appeal (if the appeal loses then that...

Re: The Nanaimo Three - Political Prisoners in Canada

Back when I was reporting the Nanaimo three trial in this discussion the topic of the mandatory victim's surcharge came up. This is a fine automatically imposed on miscreants when convicted of a criminal offense. It supposedly goes into a fund that is used to help crime victims in general. I said i...

Re: The Nanaimo Three - Political Prisoners in Canada

What weight will this carry outside of B.C.? And, can/will this finding be appealed? It's not even binding in BC. I don't know if the Crown will appeal (if the appeal loses then that decision will be binding). Another decision with a different perspective on the relationship between the courts and ...

Sadly, albeit entertainingly, David's videos show him to be a much better friend to marihuana than marihuana is to him.

Re: Speeding to jail

As a non-British person, I'm astounded at how strict penalties are. In Alberta that same 9mph (15kmph) over the limit would bring a fine of $120 (up from $89 as of July 1). If the accused pled not guilty and had a trial, the penalty would be...exactly the same. And if the scofflaw didn't pay up they...

Re: Dean Clifford - A Tale of Two Gurus

Could anyone explain briefly what rights of appeal he might in a Canadian court? Or do appeals come after sentencing? I'm very open to correction but here's my thoughts: -appeals have to be launched within 30 days but conviction appeals are usually heard alongside sentence appeals so don't hold you...

Re: Dean Clifford - A Tale of Two Gurus

In pseudo legal lore one can plead guilty to the facts without pleading guilty to the crime. I'm not sure how it works without shooting for some other legal means such as jury nullification in conjunction. So as lost in a legal swamp as deaner is I'm wondering if he said he was guilty of the facts ...

Re: Dean Clifford - A Tale of Two Gurus

Hmmmm.... found guilty or change of plea? Peace ninj I'm going to say a finding of guilt. 1) judges can't accept anything less than a perfectly unambiguous and voluntary guilty plea, and I don't think Dean can go 30 seconds without spouting something 2) a guilty plea after the Crown has presented e...

Re: Dean Clifford - A Tale of Two Gurus

My best 2 uninformed guesses are: 1)the court database doesn't distinguish between Gladue reports (pre-sentence reports by a probation officer etc looking specifically into how the offender's aboriginal history contributed to the of fence) and regular PSRs., so the entry means something more like &q...

Ok, so 4 days of Crown evidence (!!! A lot!), assuming Dean doesn't spend too long cross-examining everyone - then what? Any bets on whether Dean will refuse to participate by calling evidence, or alternatively insist on testifying for three days on irrelevancies? I'll put three Quatloos and a Timbi...

Mandeep told the client (me) to not attend court as he would attend for the client, then he failed to do so. Are the basic mechanics of this even true?

Re: Desiree Bekkerus is not a Taxpayer! Or Person!

An interesting case, and one I'd missed entirely (I don't feel entirely comfortable in the tax sections of CANLII and so don't spend much time there.) The arguments seem a curious mixture of bizarrely imported American ideas (eg only public servants are taxpayers) with some basic knowledge of Canadi...
