Victims of crime, victims of change : transition and discretion in crime victim assistance legislation in British Columbia by British Columbia( )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Special Report No. 30 details the experience of a woman who was awarded a pension under the Criminal Injury Compensation program after her husband was killed. The woman, Ms. T., was promised that her pension would continue for the rest of her life and that it would be adjusted semi annually to reflect changes in the cost of living. Several years later, those cost of living adjustments were abruptly discontinued when responsibility for the Crime Victim Assistance Program was transferred from the Workers' Compensation Board to the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General. Without prior warning, Ms. T. and about 390 other victims of crime received an unsigned and undated form letter informing them that cost of living adjustments would no longer be made to their pensions. This Ombudsman report describes the investigation process and draws conclusions based on the investigation results.--Includes text from document

The Ombudsman made 27 recommendations regarding BCLC lottery validation and payout procedures. These recommendations focus on the collection of information and data, the lottery validation process, compliance and enforcement and addressing past deficiencies.--Publisher's website
The right to know : a complaint about the Greater Victoria Public Library meeting room policy by British Columbia( )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the report of the Ombudsman's investigation into a complaint concerning the refusal of the Board of the Greater Victoria Public Library to amend the policy that regulates the use of library facilities. The complainant, the Jewish Federation of Victoria & Vancouver Island, was concerned that the Board allowed a group that allegedly promoted hatred to use the facilities, and wanted an amendment that would disallow use by groups promoting ideas likely to promote discrimination, hatred, or contempt. The Ombudsman reviewed the operation of Board policies from a fairness perspective, focussing on the need for individuals to know the conditions & restrictions under which permission to use public meeting rooms will be granted. The report documents the circumstances of the complaint, the Ombudsman's investigation, the responses from the Board, and the reasons that led to the conclusions of the investigation

Progress reported in implementing the 2009 Braidwood report recommendations and processing police complaints by British Columbia( )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Underpinning this committee inquiry is the belief that in a functioning democracy based on the rule of law, there must be effective civilian oversight of police conduct to uphold public trust in law enforcement agencies and the complaint process. Since 1999, the tool kit of police forces in British Columbia has included a conducted energy weapon (CEW) to be deployed in a volatile situation where use of force is necessary to control or subdue a person who is resisting police commands and/or posing a threat to public safety. On the use-of-force continuum, a CEW (commonly referred to as a Taser) falls into the category of an intermediate (or less-lethal) weapon, defined as a weapon whose normal use is not intended or likely to cause serious injury or death. However, the tragic CEW-related death of Robert Dziekański at Vancouver International Airport on October 14, 2007 alarmed the public, attracted intense media scrutiny and prompted a two-phase inquiry in British Columbia conducted by retired justice Thomas R. Braidwood, and an investigation undertaken by a committee of the Canadian House of Commons. In line with a dual mandate, this report is divided into two parts. Part 1 contains a summary of the follow-up review of the 2009 Braidwood report recommendations on restricting CEW use in British Columbia. Part 2 reports on the police complaint audit commissioned by the Committee.--Document

An investigation into the administration and collection of traffic camera fines by British Columbia( )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This investigation into the administration & collection of traffic camera fines in British Columbia was prompted by the observation that administrative delays had caused many people to be served with traffic camera tickets far beyond the time limits established by courts as being consistent with the Canadian Charter of Rights & Freedoms. The investigation was first directed to ensuring that measures were taken to address the ongoing problems caused when people received traffic camera violation tickets for offences that had occurred many months or even years earlier. The investigation also intended to ensure that people who had received delayed service of those tickets were aware of any remedies that may still be available to them to contest the offences. The report includes a summary of the processes used by the Insurance Company of British Columbia (ICBC), the agency that handled most of the administrative functions associated with the traffic camera program; and reviews of communications between the Ministry of Attorney General and the ICBC, procedural delays in serving tickets, measures taken to address delays, the delayed service of photo radar tickets, the adequacy of options to contest delayed service of traffic camera offences, the collection of fines by ICBC, and the fairness of fees charged to file affidavits when contesting delayed service
