Elections 2015: Parties Respond to CBA Questions on Access to Justice
During the current federal election campaign, the Canadian Bar Association (CBA) asked the main political parties (Greens, Bloc, Liberals, Conservatives, New Democrats) to answer questions about their vision for equal justice.
The parties' responses have now been made available.
They were asked three questions:
- What would your government do to bolster federal leadership on ensuring that Canada’s civil legal aid system serves the essential legal needs of all people who need help?
- What would your government do to ensure people have the legal help they need when they face criminal charges or are incarcerated?
- What would your government do to save taxpayers’ money by providing adequate legal aid to help meet people’s legal needs at an early, preventive stage
