Alberta to hire 50 Crown prosecutors to address shortage
EDMONTON -- Alberta is hiring a total of 50 more prosecutors to clear a backlog that is forcing the Crown to stay hundreds of charges, including cases of impaired driving.
Justice Minister Kathleen Ganley announced on Thursday that 35 more prosecutors will be hired on top of 15 that were already being recruited.
She also said another 30 court support staff such as clerks and data entry people will be added as part of a $14.5-million item to be outlined in next week's budget.
