Brampton, Ontario court officials continue to obstruct justice by misleading and misinforming the public about their rights

(April 13, 2010) In spite of reports of threats and harassment against members of the public by court officials at the Brampton, Ontario courthouse in the past, Canada Court Watch has learned that high ranking officials (who should know better) continue to misquote the law and mislead the public about their rights to use their own recording devices when attending their own court hearings.

Senior staff, including police, continue to insist that it is against the law for parties to record their court hearing and that electronic recording devices are prohibited in the court, even by those in their own court hearings. Officials quote the Courts of Justice Act but the Act states the opposite to what court officials are stating. Court officials state that Justice Durno had ordered all recording devices to be kept out. Yet the courts are public buildings and Justice Durno cannot issue orders that contradict the law.

Without doubt a number of high ranking and high paid officials at the Brampton courthouse are misinforming the public and this is totally unacceptable. Those responsible should be fired immediately as their actions are obstructing the administration of Justice and making a mockery out of freedom and democracy in Canada.

Hopefully, the Premier of Ontario will take steps to fix this problem very soon.

Why is it when theres laws put in place to protect the adverage person the courts don't seem to fallow these laws ? It seems to me if the judges are braking the laws to control there courtrooms then there is no law just corrupted courts and judges. They need to be held accountable for there corruption in the system and lieing to the public. It seems to me that the law was past to tape record your court proceedings because of the corruption in the leagal system and the courtrooms. The sad thing about all of this is that everyone is held accountable unless you work for the government, children's aid society or in a courtroom some how. That shows me that we have two sets of laws in this country. One for the poor and one for the powerful.


What kind of action can be taken. Should the

Justice Durno be complained about to the Judicial Council?

How can this important matter be addressed. Media? Proper Press Release? Someone going to a reporter with the law, and with the Howland Directive to discuss the issue of the Ministry of the Attorney General not ordering the courts to properly administer section 136 of the Courts of Justice Act?

Who is responsible for the signs at court houses and for education of court staff and security? This needs to change so that signs clearly state the truth of the law and the Directive issued by the former Ontario Cheif Justice Howland called the Howland Directive.
