Stop Charter right 11d violations against BC Citizens attending bail a probation office.

This petition had 8 supporters

By currently serving both bail and probation clients in the same offices throughout British Columbia, the BC Ministry of Justice is violating the  Charter right 11d of its bail clients. The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms states,

"Any person charged with a crime has the right to presumed innocent until proven guilty according to law in a fair and public hearing by an independent or impartial tribunal."

A reasonable person cannot assume every person who walks into an office known to serve both bail and probation clients, is innocent. A reasonable person would be expected to assume that a percentage of attendees are guilty, with no way of knowing which ones.

It is  at the very least unreasonable to have innocent citizens mixed in with convicted criminals, during any court ordered time span in between a citizen being charged with a crime, and having a judge decide that citizens guilt or innocence.

At worst , it could bring harm to society.
