Judge challenges defence in BC Rail case

Globe and Mail - Oct. 19, 2009

A defence application for access to BC Rail e-mails seems to have run into trouble in the Supreme Court of British Columbia.

Madam Justice Anne MacKenzie, recently appointed to handle the long-running case, sent clear signals Monday that she questions the merits of a defence argument that BC Rail must produce backup tapes that might – or might not – hold relevant e-mail records. {Snip} ...

Judge MacKenzie's repeated challenges to Mr. McCullough, however, indicate she wants to hear evidence that the relevant e-mails exist before she orders BC Rail to undertake an expensive search.

Arguments continue this week. {Snip} ...

It looks as though the government has got the best judge that money can buy. They sure know how to pick 'em
 
Mary, came across this headline today. We'll never give up until the TRUTH comes out.

Curt,

Right on ... I thought the same thing when I saw that article.

Which is why it was so important to watch the new judge, Anne MacKenzie, as she worked through the 5 fairly quiet days of last week.

But nothing in the news, except for Mark Hume's lonely column at mid-week.

To borrow a phrase from Clint Eastwood, the BC Rail Case seems to be in the grip of some "cold, dead hands" and I feel like I want to start kicking at some doors ...

Not a good feeling ... but thanks for your shout of encouragement.
