This report from CityNews:
A panel of experts studying access to justice is suggesting that cameras be allowed in some Ontario courtrooms. They believe the time has come for residents of the province to see how the wheels of justice grind, and are recommending the unblinking eye be let into the Court of Appeal and Divisional Court, as well as the Superior Court and the Ontario Court of Justice as long as no witnesses are examined.
Cameras are currently banned in all Ontario courts.
But Attorney General Michael Bryant is prepared to seriously consider the idea.
"I agree with the recommendation," he agrees. "I think it is inevitable that cameras will be coming into the courtrooms of our nation, and I think that our justice system is ready for its close-up."
