Adversarial Justice System

"The Canadian criminal Justice system is an adversarial system where two opposing sides present their case before an impartial arbiter. The Crown attorney, representing the government of Canada, and the accused, usually represented by defence counsel, are adversaries during this process" (Antonacci, 2013, p.15).
