Tomorrow, the BC Provincial Court is holding an event that is the first of its kind in Canada!
Hoping to get a valuable discussion started, associations like the CBA (Canadian Bar Association,) the Law Society and ourselves, along with many other colleagues and the community, will be submitting topics and questions to address. While I’m not sure 2 hours will be enough time to cover every single issue, it is certainly a formidable start! We need to be talking about our justice system, and our citizens need to know that this dialogue is happening. In my view, this is not just a new-age initiative to prove that Judge Crabtree can roll with the social media crowd, but a glimpse into what the future may hold.
Online engagement is no longer an option, nor is transparency within our systems – and this unique initiative is a perfect opportunity to see how we can effectively progress with both.
(If you’d like to submit your own question, just tag @BCProvCourt & feel free to send it in advance to provide ample time for a response tomorrow.)
Remember, that you don’t have to be on twitter to follow along – simply click on the links to view the event tomorrow. If you are on twitter, however, remember to tweet @BCProvCourt & tag #TLABC and tell us where you are – a courthouse, office etc.
We’ll “see” you tomorrow – Online!
