Outrage! Canada's Justice System on Trial, Revised Edition
|This controversial book by a former B.C. attorney general asks the
contentious question, "Is Justice being served by Canada's current criminal
|For the most part, Macdonald's answer is "No." Clogged courtrooms,
procedural wrangling, problems caused by well-intentioned but ill-considered
legislation such as the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the Young Offenders
Act -all these combine to thwart natural justice, as any reasonable citizen
would define it. Acerbic and iconoclastic, Macdonald points to the system's
foibles and failures, in a witty and compassionate book that is guaranteed to
inspire outrage, incredulity, and a call for judicial reform.
First published in 1999, this new edition contains new and updated material throughout.
Written by Alex Macdonald. Published by Raincoast Books, 2000.
