The eight women and six men are doing their civic duty. They are witnessing the graphic and horrific details of the death of a 19-year old former star athlete as members of the jury in a murder case in Halifax. The 30-day trial is hearing about the bus driver who comforted the young man in his car and the graphic wounds he suffered. And unlike the Mass Casualty Commission, they will see it all. Nothing is being redacted or presented in a "trauma-informed way". And after they give their verdict, they'll collect their 40-dollars a day and mileage costs. But they are bound by law, not to disclose what they saw or heard or read. And that's something Mark Farrant has been fighting against as the founder and CEO of the Canadian Juries Commission. The group wants mental health and other supports for people who serve on juries. And a Senate Bill that will change things for the better, will be discussed in the House of Commons this week. And Farrant is optimistic about the future.
