Failure to disclose 911 call information ‘should cease’ | Law Times

911 CALL INFORMATION MUST BE DISCLOSED – In York Region this information is part of the initial disclosure package but not so in Peel Region. Their policy of non-disclosure is “unfathomable” and “amounts to an abrogation of the Crown’s constitutional obligation. It has exceeded its best before date by about 35 years and should cease immediately.”
The Court of Appeal has blasted a policy in the Peel Region Crown attorney’s office, which did not automatically disclose 911 calls to an accused person. In R. v. M.G.T., the court found the fact that such a policy of non-disclosure existed in a Crown’s office in 2017 was “unfathomable.”
