Mr. Speaker, it is not the first time I raise this issue in the House.
What more evidence does the minister need? The legal community of Campbellton, the provincial minister of justice, even the chief justice of the province agree that a new judge is necessary as caseloads are tripling. Women forced to leave abusive homes cannot even get a court date to have their properties and their support issues dealt with.
Will the minister announce to the House when she intends to make a decision on the request for a new judge in the court district of Restigouche?
