Unconscionable delay in civil justice: Is it also unconstitutional?

Click on the link to read my article, “Unconscionable delay in civil justice: Is it also unconstitutional?” 32AdvocQ277.  It exposes the elephant in the room every time an Askov blitz diverts court resources from the civil to criminal court docket.  Is the right of criminal accuseds to a speedy trial worth more to Canadian society than injury victims to their day in court for compensation?  In times of underfunding of justice, why should court resources not be subject to the same considerations as (more generously funded) health care?  Read it and let me know what you think.
