Ontario to consider cameras in court, CP reports

 The Canadian Press is reporting that Ontario’s attorney general “says he’s open to the idea of allowing cameras in courtrooms and says the time is right to canvas judges, Crown attorneys and defence lawyers on their opinions.”
CP’s Allison Jones says a 2008 unreleased report “recommended the attorney general amend the Courts of Justice Act to allow the use of cameras in Ontario courts, saying their images have “great potential” as a learning tool for students and lawyers.” The media, it says, also want cameras to promote transparency and “reduced the risk of errors and bias in reporting.”
