(QUEEN'S PARK) - Randy Hillier, MPP for Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington today tabled legislation that calls for the return of grand juries in the province of Ontario. This Bill is one of a number of amendments to the judicial system which Mr. Hillier has recently tabled.
“Throughout my career, I’ve been a proponent of freedom, justice and democracy,” said Hillier. Grand juries were once a key component of our justice system until 40 years ago and the creation of the Ombudsman’s office. However, with the exponential rise in the number of unelected, unaccountable government agencies, the need for grand juries has never been greater or more apparent.”
