Ddoll you are right. Duty Counsel is not legal aid. Anyone can speak to them, you just have to get to the court house early, put your name on the list and wait your turn. If you're the type that wants to rep yourself (bad idea) they have DC avail to go into court w/you as well for the preliminary stuff. Thing is, you will get a different DC every time but certainly to go and ask Duty Counsel some pointed questions (direction w/filling out necessary forms/affadavits etc,) regarding your matter is not a bad idea at all. Also correct: a lawyer that advises you in DC cannot be retained by you. CanLii is a great source but I believe it is only Superior Court Matters on CanLii, not Provincial Court Judgments.
