Calls are mounting for Ottawa to fill judicial vacancies after an Alberta Court of Queen's Bench judge stayed a first-degree murder charge, citing unreasonable delays. A jury trial was to begin next week for 29-year-old Lance Matthew Regan, who was accused of stabbing to death fellow inmate Mason Tex Montgrand at Edmonton Institution in August 2011. Ian Savage is president of the Calgary-based Criminal Defence Lawyers' Association. He says the court delays come at the worst possible time in Alberta. (Savage says there are not enough Queen's Bench judges in Alberta to handle the volume of cases in a timely manner.)
