Public courts? Not really.

If this story is real, then it’s proof that our courts are open in concept only. Imagine how impossible getting psyOp court case information is. Impossible.

Reporters who cover Ontario’s justice system have long lamented the lack of transparency they can encounter while navigating the courts. Courts are supposed to be open to the public — and that includes bail hearings, trials and appeals, as well as records filed in cases. (While the courts are presumptively open, there are certain aspects of procedures that are subject to publication bans, it should be noted).
