I want to pick up on one of the comments you made in your opening address. You were talking about proposed subsection 672.64(1), which is the designation of a high-risk accused. You were saying that the assessment that's going to be made is in the wrong place because this is before treatment is done.
I have to say that I don't believe that's accurate. In fact, I believe it's completely false.
When you look at the proposed subsection, what it says is, “On application made by the prosecutor before any disposition to discharge an accused absolutely...”. This is before a review board; this is when it might be going to the review board. The person has been found not criminally responsible by a court. They've gone to have treatment at a hospital. When you look at the sections, people who are NCR go to a hospital for treatment. It's when the review board is going to absolutely discharge the person the crown may bring the application.
So your statement that there hasn't been treatment is false, actually, because there has been treatment, and sufficient treatment, to where a board is saying they think it's time to absolutely discharge the person.
I'm giving you the opportunity to maybe correct your evidence.
