For the first time in Alberta history, a court verdict might not only be recorded by TV cameras, but also livestreamed to the public as well.
Several media outlets, including Global News, made their case Wednesday afternoon, to have cameras in the courtroom next week when a decision is made in the first-degree murder trial for Travis Vader.
They argue the public has a right to witness the decision first-hand.
Justice Denny Thomas told the courtroom he will decide on whether to allow it on Tuesday.
Vader faces the murder charges in the deaths of Lyle and Marie McCann in July 2010.
His lawyer supports the idea, as does the family of the McCanns.
