Judge orders Crown to speed access to info on Toronto gang raids

This information would have been readily available in other democracies, why do we like to pretend we operate in one when the secrecy in Canada rivals that of Russia in the 1960's?

A Toronto judge has ordered the Crown to hasten work to unseal information used to obtain search warrants, which may offer clues into whether Mayor Rob Ford has a connection to members of an alleged criminal organization.

Media lawyers have asked the court to unseal the material tied to 43 recent arrests of members of the Dixon City Bloods and others with alleged ties to the gang targeted in the “Project Traveller” investigation.

They argued it is in the public interest to reveal whether police have found any evidence connecting the gang to Ford.
