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 justice system?"
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.
