Disappearing Court Comments
February 24, 2014 permalink
When Jennifer Demers was in Pembroke Ontario family court on August 26, 2013 judge Robert G Selkirk made a short comment during auguments which demonstrated judicial bias. She ordered a transcript to get a record of his remarks, but when it arrived on January 7, 2014 the prejudical remark was absent. On ordering an audio recording of the hearing, she found that the remark was also missing from the audio. If Mrs Demers is to be believed, the court is altering both the recording and the transcript before letting them out of the courthouse.
