Proposal: QB Justices need training in family law
Court Procedure - Mar 30th

Anonymous12 Comments

There should be a separate section of QB where the Justices deal only with family law matters, similar to PC. Otherwise, all QB Justices should be given extensive family law training before they're allowed to handle family law cases.

Proposal: Subsidise mediation and arbitration
ADR - Jan 23rd

Ken Proudman of BARR LLP (Alberta)1 Comment

In England, couples can use £500 vouchers for mediation ($851 CAD). I imagine that has to be a lot less expensive than paying for additional judges, clerks, and security.
