Disorder in the court
Gerard J. Kennedy’s essay brilliantly dissects the current economic, social, and political realities of Canada’s civil court system (“Justice for Some,” November). While the Supreme Court of Canada has tried to address problematic delays in the criminal law system, issues in the civil system remain unresolved. The same flaws — complex procedures, exorbitant expenses, and slow processes — exist in family law courts. Canada should, therefore, establish a Royal Commission to advise the public, government, and judiciary on how to establish more friendly, efficient, and affordable systems — in criminal, civil, and family law.
