Let cameras into B.C. courtrooms, lawyer urges

A Vancouver lawyer says it may be time to publicly broadcast proceedings from B.C. courtrooms.

Robert Holmes, who is the president of the Trial Lawyers Association of B.C. and the B.C. Civil Liberties Association, said allowing the media to use cameras and microphones in courtrooms may go far to repair a "disconnect" between the public and the courts.

Holmes said cameras are already allowed in the Supreme Court of Canada, the Ontario Court of Appeal and many U.S. states.
