When COVID-19 is eradicated, will our society be any different?
Systemic racism abounds in our justice system. Perhaps we should defund the police and radically change our whole penal justice system.
Perhaps we need a new framework of law that embraces fairness and clarity.
Perhaps our Members of Parliament need to impose tighter restrictions on police powers of search and detention.
Perhaps "forensic science" should bear some resemblance to science.
Perhaps we should pay attention to the reports that have studied miscarriages of justice in Ontario.
Perhaps we need to encourage our Courts to remember that the scales of justice are fair measurement scales.
What concrete steps can be taken to improve the Canadian justice system post-pandemic?
If you are a politician, how can we help you to resist police demands for more gear and power?
