Media Ban

| No Comments

There is a publication ban on Canadian media during preliminary hearings in the murder cases against Robert Pickton. Better hope prospective jurors don't know how to use Google News.

As the BBC notes:

[T]he case has drawn international press attention, and some foreign reporters say they will ignore the ban and give full accounts of the evidence in their own countries.

Many of those reports are likely to be available on the internet, leading to a legal debate in Canada about the point of a press ban in the age of global communications.

Currently listening to: Tom Waits - Who Are You.
