Clark Demands Answers About Brockville Courts

Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark is welcoming a commitment by Ontario's Attorney General to investigate why requests to install equipment at the Brockville Court House to enable video remands have been ignored by his ministry for five years.

Clark raised the issue in Question Period on Tuesday, asking the Attorney General to explain why Brockville is one of the only court houses in Eastern Ontario without video technology.

Right now, Brockville Police have to transfer offenders around the building to a holding cell where they are monitored by a third officer.
