Question Period – April 18, 2018 – Judicial Appointments

Mr. Speaker, yesterday, first-degree murder charges against notorious gang leader Nick Chan were thrown out of court due to delay.

The Minister of Justice claims that she is appointing judges, but after a year and a half, only one out of 10 new judicial spots created to stem the backlog in Alberta’s courts has been filled. This is worse than inaction. This is negligence.

Will the minister take responsibility for the release of this dangerous criminal?
