    Do publication bans erode transparency in Canada's courts?

    Openness and transparency are key tenets of our justice system. But what happens when more and more information is locked behind a publication ban?
    In a first-of-its-kind investigation, reporters Adrian Humphreys and Talha Hashmani looked into the rising number of discretionary publication bans in both criminal and civil cases.
    Adrian joins Dave to discuss why more publication bans are being granted, how these bans intrude on the notion of open courts, and how that can erode credibility in the justice system.

Good host

Dave is a good host and the show is pretty decent with a vibe closer to what I expect is the culture of the Edmonton Journal newsroom. The podcast is best when it avoids engaging with the opinion columnists from the National Post, but it is generally an engaging listen and Breakenridge is a good journalist.

Great Source for Canadian News

Dave Breakenridge does an excellent job of asking pointed questions with as unbiased an approach as it seems possible to get these days. His guests have a variety of viewpoints, and he has someone different on every episode, so if you really don’t like listening to one guest, you can always come back next time. The topics are also varied, so it’s not like listening to the same commentary on repeat like a lot of news shows. Some of the topics have really stood out and deserve more coverage in the mainstream media. This podcast is a great asset for Canadian news watchers.
