Alberta’s crown prosecutors say an increased workload and a wage freeze is causing some members to bolt for greener pastures. Damian Rogers with the Alberta Crown Attorney’s Association believes the government putting money aside to hire 10 more prosecutors for regional offices is a good move. But he said 20 have left those offices in the past year and the government needs to rethink how it’s doing things.“Review staffing to make a determination as to what the appropriate size of our prosecution service is and also to review the decision on this four and a half year salary freeze because it’s made it very difficult for us to retain and attract prosecutors,” said Rogers. Justice Minister Kathleen Ganley said her government is monitoring the problem and she shares the prosecutors concerns.“Because those offices are very small, we have challenges with file caseloads so we’ve put in a few more people so we can help with those file caseloads but of course the concern is someone leaves and they get a little higher,” said Ganley. “We’re going to continue monitoring and working with them in the hopes of being able to solve that problem.”The association believes the heavy work and stress are a result of the Supreme Court’s Jordan decision, which means an accused can have their charges dropped if too much time passes before going to trial.
