      Hi Nooria,

      Wow! You sure got a lot out of watching the videos! What is the biggest difference between Canada’s legal system and Germany’s?

    Out of curiosity, how many religious books do they have at the court? I think there is must a pretty big library.

      Hi Ivan,

      I assume that they have a large selection to cover the various religions. This might be a good question to ask on Wednesday when we visit the law courts.

    Just now I learn the word “Crown” in B.C law, which means the law representing the public.
