The Legislature Raids go to Ottawa

The Supreme Court of Canada today granted leave to appeal and expedited the appeal and cross-appeals of everyone involved in the ongoing fracas over how the Virk and Basi trial should proceed. The issue at this stage is the degree to which the Crown is able to shelter confidential informants from scrutiny (even of the most basic sort) by the defence.

It is extremely rare for the Supreme Court of Canada to intervene in any such fight mid-trial so obviously they are intrigued by the circus which has occupied our courts, media and public for close to six years now.
