Camera pandering Manitoba Crowns!
Thank you for posting the article the other day from the Winnipeg Free Press (Crown attorneys concerned about safety, fight cameras in Court - CBC News). I had seen the headline online but then forgot about it and then it vanishes from sight online.
Ha. And they are public servants who do not seem to mind standing outside the York Avenue doors at The Law Courts and speaking to the media following a case - especially when it works out in their favour. Besides, they are still visible inside, after all, so anyone who wants to know what they look like (for whatever reason) can just go inside. (I know, they said this, or CBC did, but if they are worried, then perhaps they need a new line of work). And this is an inquest, not a trial. They seem to be getting a slight bit challenging - may not be able to be of assistance to the judge (or words to that effect). How is that? Excuse me. Are they not after the truth? Are they not suggesting they may not do their JOB as a lawyer? So what does the Law Society say to that? And how will the judge at the inquest feel if they do not assist in an inquest, when s/he sees them at a trial?
Thank you for contacting CyberSmokeBlog. Oh for sure many Manitoba Crowns are not above pandering before the television cameras when it suits them. They don't seem to appreciate they can't have it both ways.
