Question Period – May 16, 2016 Pt. 2

Mr. Michael Cooper (St. Albert—Edmonton, CPC): Mr. Speaker, Chief Justice Wittmann said, last week, this of the judicial vacancy crisis:

“Sooner or later there’s going to be a serious delay in a serious offence, by that I mean a violent crime.” This week we find out that at least two sexual assault cases in Alberta will likely be thrown out of court due to delay. When will the minister stop dithering, stop the delay, and start appointing judges?
