A Kamloops lawyer pleased to hear the wheels of justice are moving quicker in the province.
The time to adjudicate cases has fallen significantly over the last ten years.
B.C Government figures show in 2006, cases took an average of 111 days to decide, that dropped to 100 days in 2016.
Kamloops lawyer Graham Kay speaks for the Canadian Bar Association.
“111 days is roughly less than four months and so we are well below the standard put by the Supreme Court of Canada. Provincial court matters should be 18 months and Supreme court matters I think was 30 months.”
Murder cases took the longest to conclude, at 556 days.
