CANADIAN CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM 2
Discuss a Self Selected Topic Related To an Injusticeor Problem with the Canadian Criminal Justice
System
The criminal justice system in Canada is tasked with the mandate of ensuring the overall
wellness, safety, and productivity of its citizens. It also enables the creation of a just and law-abiding
society. With a just and fair system, Canadians can access justice, feel safe, and develop confidence in
the justice system. As a result, it improves the quality of life and contributes greatly to the country's
prosperity. Hence, having a good justice system is critical, even in Canada. However, there have been
significant problems with the justice system. One such problem is the system delays in Canadian courts.
Without a doubt, justice delayed is justice denied. Therefore, this paper will analyze the extent of the
problem, the root cause of the delays injustice, and offer possible solutions to the problem.
The problem of system delays in criminal justice has been there for years. In 2016, the Senate of
Canada authorized a study to be conducted to determine the extent of the problem. The committee
members arraigned for a public hearing in Ottawa and Halifax, which featured 75 witnesses(Runciman &
Baker,2016). The witnesses called on the stand were legal experts, government officials, former and
sitting judges and lawyers, victims, police, among many others.
The research concluded that between 2013 and 2014, the average time taken for finalizing adult
cases was 123 days. Homicide cases, on the other hand, took an average of 451 days, sexual assault
cases took an average of 321 days, and finally attempted murder cases involved an average of 451 days
(Runciman & Baker,2016). Trial cases generally require a lot of resources and time to build the case
instead of cases that do not require a trial. However, the court delays far much exceed the normal time
requirement.
