It's easy, they simply adopt the federal court system, they don't have to reinvent the wheel or spend a fortune (But you know, instead they will spend a fortune and blow it). Easy to set up a system whereby for each court file there is a secure website; documents to be filed can be uploaded to it, all parties are notified via an email or text alert, judge or master assigned can access all documents, can print them, can post decisions, etc. All this filing of bound documents, cirlox, etc. belongs in pre-2000.

Law Times poll

A Law Times columnist says given the responsibility to uphold the Charter of Rights and its associated values, Canadian lawyers should respect and defend press freedom. Do you feel press freedom in Canada is under threat?
Yes, there are ongoing criminal cases involving journalists doing their jobs, that concern me.
No, considering the international climate, Canada is a free, fair and open place when it comes to press freedom.
