  1. Many/most readers will not know what WASH Court is which is why using acronyms is always preceded by using the full term, which is not done here. WASH stands for Weekend and Statutory Holiday, as explained below by a southern Ontario law firm, Aitken Robertson Law:

    “For someone who gets arrested on the weekend or a holiday, it means that, if they are held for bail, they will have an opportunity to get a bail hearing as soon as possible. The Criminal Code at s. 503 requires that someone who is held for bail be brought before a justice “without unreasonable delay” and “where a justice is available,” the outside limit is 24 hours. Having a full bail court each and every day reinforces the court’s ability to have accused persons before them within 24 hours.
    “There is a Crown prosecutor, court officer, clerk, reporter, duty counsel and, of course, a justice of the peace.”
