Recent Amendments to the Criminal Code - Bill C-75

Speaker(s): The Honourable Judge Saunders
Time: Tuesday, December 17, 2019 - 12:30pm - 2:00pm (Pacific Time)
Location: Gina's Mexican Cafe, 47 Skinner Street, Nanimo, BC

The Honourable Judge Saunders will provide an overview of some of the sweeping amendments that came into force on September 19, 2019 as a result of the Act to Amend the Criminal Code, the Youth Criminal Justice Act and other Acts, S.C. 2019, c. 25 (formerly Bill C-75).  Some of the amendments, such as the abolition of peremptory challenges of jurors and the restriction of preliminary inquiries, have been the subject of court challenges in relation to whether they apply retrospectively or prospectively, leading to some conflicting decisions.  Judge Saunders will lead a presentation highlighting the key amendments and discuss the issues that have arisen as a result of the changes.
