Court Transcripts Altered

May 21, 2007 permalink

Canada Court Watch has posted a letter from Gil Labossiere (pdf), attaching letters from several other cases. Canada Court Watch departs from its usual practice by giving the names of all but one party. Mr Labossiere (website) got court transcripts that were altered — the electronic recordings were altered before being transcribed to paper. Goran Kapetanovic also had his court transcripts altered. In two other cases, David John Sykes and an anonymous litigant were prevented from bringing a recording device to their own court hearing, though Ontario law allows a party to a case to record his own hearing. The last letter is from Gene Colosimo, a father separated from his children for ten years. Here is our local copy of the letter.
