The Supreme Court of Canada today released the groundbreaking decision in R v Barton. Mr. Barton was represented by Dino Bottos and Bottos Law Group at trial and on appeal.
In an exclusive CBC report delving into the ongoing troubles with the bail system in Alberta, Bottos Law Group Associate William van Engen provided key commentary and opinion.
Dino Bottos, an Edmonton-based criminal defence lawyer, says that a lack of appreciation of the Charter may be in part because it has been in place for less than four decades.
Police must remain objective and impartial. They must be open to innocent explanations in regards to a particular suspect. An officer who begins from the presumption that a criminal suspect is a “maggot” may have lost objectivity.
Writing in the Law Times on the recent Supreme Court of Canada hearing for R v Barton, Matthew Gourlay of Henein Hutchison LLP says the following: "Overturning the Court of Appeal and reinstating Barton’s acquittal would be politically unpopular. This will be a crucial test of the Supreme Court’s institutional integrity — one that we should all hope it does not fail to meet."
