"This report reviews the many contributing factors to the delay crisis, potential solutions for fixing them, and other ways in which our justice system can be made more fair and efficient. It considers the various roles played by key participants: judges, lawyers, police, accused persons, victims, and public officials. It finds examples of best practices from different parts of the country and examines how populations in northern communities and Indigenous Canadians are served by the system. In seeking solutions for improving Canada’s approach to justice, it covers many wide-ranging challenges and criminal law issues"--Exec. Summary, p. 2.
