Provincial Ombuds Offer Insights as Guest Bloggers

Slaw, a Canadian legal blog, will feature five provincial Ombuds as guest bloggers to mark Good Governance Week. Kim Carter, Ombuds for the Province of British Columbia, posted first on “Administrative Justice in British Columbia – The Road Less Travelled.” Carter explains that, “In the arena of administrative justice, the ombudsman’s office is a sort of ‘soft-power’ alternative to the ‘hard-power’ of the legal system.” Posts from the Ombuds for Ontario, Quebec, Newfoundland & Labrador, and Saskatchewan will follow.
