Why has a justice of the peace been making major decisions -- including imposing a media ban -- in the case of the suspected terror plot?
I am no legal expert but it seems to me that the national and international media have been blithely writing about Brampton justice of the peace Keith D. Currie, if they mention him at all, without questioning why he is presiding? Nothing against his worship, but doesn't Brampton have Ontario Court and Superior Court judges who have been lawyers before being called to the bench and are steeped in criminal law? Or does the media ban effectively prevent discussion of that as well?
Thoughts? Opinions? Anybody?
