Calling out poor judgement in Canadian courtrooms

Dear Editor

Recently bad judges have been revealed by social media displaying problems of the Canadian justice system. Judges are not all doing their job well. My experience with a superior court judge is perhaps the worst of all those bad judges. One of a judge’s duties is to do whatever possible to prevent unfair legal disadvantage to the un-represented party, preserving his or her impartiality. We don’t know what happens behind the scenes, counsels, government officers, the Board vice chair and superior court judge can all work together to bully the self-represented plaintiff. It appears judges are to free to make prejudgement against an appellant. The judge sometimes looks like a close friend of the respondent. In the case I observed, the judge denied the appellant’s procedural rights. The judge willfully violated mandatory standards of judicial conduct, such as independent and impartial decision making. Ignoring judicial rules of procedure, law and evidence, rules of civil procedures and usual court orders. We have trusted the Canadian justice system. But in experiencing more and more miscarriage of justice, we find ourselves disappointed. Where is the justice? Can disadvantaged people access justice with a language barrier, financial barrier and/or lack of legal knowledge. What prevents a corrupt judge taking such advantage to bully you? The evils should be exposed.
