Basi, Virk, Basi: Friday May 14, 10:00 AM
In BC Supreme Courtroom 55 ... it seems to be all about
CCC 121 1 a ii
CCC 121 1 d
CCC 380 1 a
Presumably, potentially, possibly this is preparation for the long-awaited trial of Basi, Virk, Basi which is expected to begin on Monday, May 17, 2010.

"As for using a recording device, he can ask the court for permission, as can any citizen."
Listen folks, this is a crock.
I was in the BC Supreme Court two weeks ago, and, as a self-represented litigant I respectfully asked the judge for permission to record the proceedings, citing the legislation which permits this.
I was flatly and emphatically refused by the judge.
So, we can ask. But then we can ask for the moon too, and have about as much a chance of having our request met.
Mary, perhaps you may wish to ask Mr. Hall for his response to my experience in the BC Supreme Court.
By the way, I have the transcript which contains this request and the judge's refusal, should anyone want proof.
Bet the Vancouver Sun isn't interested though.
