Report to the Canadian Judicial Council of the inquiry committee appointed under subsection 63(3) of the Judges Act to conduct an investigation into the conduct of the Honourable Robin Camp, a Justice...: JU14-28/2016E-PDF

"While a judge of the Provincial Court, Justice Camp presided over the trial of R. v. Wagar (the “Wagar Trial” or the “Trial”), in which the accused was charged with sexual assault. Justice Camp heard evidence and submissions on three separate days over a period of two months. A month after the Trial, Justice Camp delivered Reasons for Judgment acquitting the accused of sexual assault. The acquittal was overturned by the Alberta Court of Appeal, having found that Justice Camp’s conduct of the Trial and his Reasons for Judgment disclosed errors of law. This inquiry was convened as a result of a complaint from the Minister of Justice and Solicitor General for Alberta to the Canadian Judicial Council (the “Council”) concerning the Judge’s conduct during the Trial"--p.
