August 11, 2007) - Court Watch has received a call from a citizen who has claimed that he was given the run-around by administration personnel at the Thunder Bay, Ontario court and that the transcripts of his court hearing were altered significantly from what was said in court. The caller will be forwarding to Court Watch a copy of his complaint letter to the Attorney General of Ontario as well as the Premier of Ontario about his unpleasant experience with the court and the tampering of his court transcripts. Court Watch will be posting this letter in the near future.

More complaints against Justice Marvin Zuker for transcript altering
(August 8, 2007) - The issue of Justice Zuker altering court transcripts appears not to be going away. Another parent has contacted Canada Court Watch with claims that Justice Marvin Zuker altered the transcripts in his court hearing as well and that he will be taking action this through appropriate legal channels. According to this parent, Justice Zuker also violated this person's rights by refusing him to record his court hearing as is legally permitted under section 136 of the Ontario Court of Justice Act. Of course many judges do not want recording devices in their courts as this limits their ability to "fix" transcripts after hearings.

There is growing public concern about Justice Zuker being allowed to sit on the bench after it was revealed that that he had altered court documents in a court case in which he was the presiding judge. Altering court documents in a judicial proceeding is a criminal offence under section 139 of the Criminal Code of Canada. Court Watch has received hundreds of signatures on petitions to the legislature asking that Justice Zuker be removed as judge and that he be charged by police for his acts which have violated the public's trust in the administration of Justice.

Democracy, freedom and the Rule of Law cannot continue to exist in Canada if unelected Judges are allowed to break the law with impunity and then still be allowed to sit as a judge over the rest of Canadians. This amounts to a situation where there is one set of laws for the citizens and another unwritten set of laws for our unelected judges. This is not the kind of Canada our forefathers gave their lives for. By allowing Justice Zuker to remain on the bench, the Ontario Judicial Council has only tarnished the Administration of Justice in Canada and given fuel to those who argue that judges must be elected in Canada.
