Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Thank you, Mr. MacGregor, for bringing this motion forward. I too support it.
I want to say that I know that in Nova Scotia there has been some publicity around the fact that some people don't show up for jury duty. It's an essential element of our criminal justice system to have members of the public coming forward.
If we can study this and make some recommendations about ways to show that we support this public service of jurors who are actually serving in that capacity in our system, then I think we will have done a good service. It would send that strong signal that jury duty is important, we do value that service to the public, and we want to make sure that jurors are taken care of for the duty they have served.
I support the motion.
