Unless you can think of a reason why your rights to a trial within a reasonable time have been violated that will convince the JP to throw away a Supreme Court decision, I think you can throw away that line of thinking. So you'll need to focus on the facts of your case. If that was the entirety of your defense, you might as well just show up and hope the cop is a no-show.RichardC009780 wrote: ↑May 22nd, 2019 2:17 pmMy court date is in two days and I received the following letter just in the mail. This is after applying for a stay of proceedings. I am not sure how to proceed from here:
The letter says "We received your application seeking a stay of proceedings alleging that your right to a trial within a reasonable time under s 11(b) of the Charter was violated. It is our position that the time from the offence date to the trial date (11 months 24 days) is well below the 18 month ceiling as set out by the Supreme Court of Canada in R v. Jordan  S.C.J No. 27, 2016 SCC 27 and R v. Cody,  S.C.J. No. 31, 2017 SCC 31. In accordance with the Supreme Court’s instructions to trial justices in paragraph 63 of Jordan and paragraph 38 of Cody, we will be asking the presiding justice of the peace to summarily dismiss your application since it is frivolous. We will not be submitting "
I was wondering if anyone can give me advice on what should I do on the actual date of trial in two days. Thanks in advance,
