Ruling on Stevie Cameron expected in April

The Ontario Superior Court judge who oversaw the three-week inquiry into journalist Stevie Cameron’s role as a confidential RCMP informant says he will complete his ruling by the end of March. Judge Edward Then told the Globe and Mail he was unhappy that the ruling has taken more than two years to complete. Judge Then launched the inquiry in 2004 to determine whether the contravention of his order to keep Cameron’s name out of the fraud trial of Eurocopter Canada had brought the administration of justice into disrepute. Judge Then acknowledged that the delayed ruling had left both Cameron and the RCMP in a kind of limbo in tems of their reputations.
