Interview: Proposed changes to judicial appointments comes under fire

Apr 18, 2021 | News

Janani has a recent interview on Law Times News.

The Ontario Government heard from opponents of its proposed changes to the Judicial Appointments Advisory Committee during a Committee on the Legislative Assembly session Thursday and Friday. The committee took submissions on a number of proposed laws, including Bill 245, the Accelerating Access to Justice Act. The Act would change the composition and function of the Judicial Appointments Advisory Committee, which recommends candidates to the Attorney General for provincial court appointments. The Province says the changes are intended to fill judicial vacancies more quickly and increase the diversity of the bench.”
