Symposium questions lengthy legal motions - Toronto Star

I find this article very accurate and exemplative of how defence counsel are used as justice system scape-goats.   

Defence lawyers are unfairly shouldering the blame for longer criminal trials, a legal symposium was told on the weekend.

While members of the criminal bar are being told to stop bringing so many motions that challenge the admissibility of evidence and lengthen court proceedings, the opposite message is being delivered to Crown attorneys, the conference was told.
