â€œItâ€™s objectionable and deplorable that this government would not want to know why an innocent person could be convicted in the first place, would not want to know why it would take so long for that person to be cleared by a process in which the Crown tenders no evidence whatsoever.â€
Kormos is right.
What the hell is going on? We should not employ prosecutors to take non-cases to court. Less than a month ago, they went into jury selection. This did not have to go to court. Tax-payer’s money did not have to be spent to have a prosecutor go to court just to say they have no evidence. I think the judge should have penalized the prosecution for wasting everybody’s time and money. It really is insulting. Maybe the take-home message is that the prosecution is not to be trusted.
Does John Baltovich deserve compensation? Yes but remember: any sort of public compensation just makes the tax-payer pay — again. This is an abuse of public office. Somebody should lose a job over this.
I wish I could spend my employer’s time telling him that at the end of the day, there is no work for me to do and still collect a pay cheque!
