In Government of Saskatchewan and Christ the Teacher Roman Catholic Separate School Division v. Good Spirit School Division https://shoresjardine.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/Order-LiveStreaming-GoodSpirit-CACV30753076.pdf the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal granted an Order allowing CBC to live stream the argument of the appeal.  The Order was issued pursuant to the Court’s policy on Cameras in the Courtroom: https://sasklawcourts.ca/images/documents/Resources/CA_Cameras_Courtroom_Policy.pdf.

The Appellant Attorney General of Saskatchewan consented to CBC’s Application to live stream the argument, and no party in the appeal opposed CBC’s request.
