"Miranda Rights" not imported to Canada - how does this affect people accused of a crime?
Calgary Herald story
A deeply divided Supreme Court of Canada refused Friday to import U.S. "Miranda rights" to Canada, ruling that it would frustrate criminal investigations and slow down the justice system to impose a constitutional guarantee for suspects to have lawyers present during police interrogations.
The news story seems simplistic to me - would anyone like to enlighten me on how this will (and currently does) affect people accused of crimes in Canada?
