NEWS - Provincial Court Support Person Guidelines
On April 10, 2017 provincial court Chief Judge Thomas J. Crabtree issue a Notice to the Profession for family court and civil proceedings. This was followed up by a notice from the provincial court titled Guidelines for Using a Support Person in Provincial Court. An associated publication from the National Self-Represented Litigant's Project is The McKenzie Friend: Choosing and Presenting a Courtroom Companion.
While this does not apply specifically to traffic court, a judicial justice may choose to allow a courtroom companion to assist you with your ticket dispute. Should you wish to take advantage of assistance from someone other than a practicing lawyer during your dispute reading and following the advice from these publications closely will increase your chances of the companion being accepted.
