Thank you so much.
I didn't practise in the area of criminal law. We've heard a lot about delays in the criminal justice system. I saw it in the civil side, and I've heard from my family law colleagues that even delays within the criminal law system have spillover to the abused spouse seeking a divorce, or a small business owner looking to get back an unpaid debt; these delays have an impact even beyond the criminal justice system. They impact middle-class Canadians who depend on the justice system in times of need.
As one of the most litigated matters before the court, could you explain how this bill would ease the delays of our justice system as a whole?
