BC's Electronic Device in Courtroom Policy Soon to be in Force

Next month the new policy addressing use of electronic devices in BC Courtrooms will come into force.  In short lawyers and “accredited media” will be permitted to “use electronic devices to transmit and receive text” in the BC Supreme Court and BC Provincial Court.
The Court of Appeal is more liberal allowing not just lawyers and media to have this privilege but extending it to “any person“.
