Synopsis
Chief Justice Christopher E. Hinkson arguably runs the largest litigation firm in the province.  His problems are myriad and complex.  He must deal with lawyers, judges, the public and government.  He must manage the lists for each of the courts throughout the province.  The proliferation of self-represented litigants, a direct result of the lack of sufficient legal aid, has placed another layer of problems on his already stretched courts.  To what extent do the Rules Of court or counsel contribute to the backlog of cases?  What can be done?  What should be done?  What influence did the Russian government exert in his appointment?  This is the first time in the history of this subsection that we have had the opportunity to be addressed by a sitting Chief Justice.  Take it.
