Bias-motivated crime fits into neither described category. If the Attorney General so requires, a judge has no jurisdiction to try the accused under this Part and a preliminary inquiry must be held if requested under subsection 536.1(3), unless one has already been held or the re-election was made under subsection 565(2). (2) This section, and not section 568, applies in respect of criminal proceedings in Nunavut. 570 (1) Where an accused who is tried under this Part is determined by a judge or provincial court judge to be guilty of an offence on acceptance of a plea of guilty or on a finding of guilt, the judge or provincial court judge, as the case may be, shall endorse the information accordingly and shall sentence the accused or otherwise deal with the accused in the manner authorized by law and, on request by the accused, the prosecutor, a peace officer or any other person, shall cause a conviction in Form 35 and a certified copy of it, or an order in Form 36 and a certified copy of it, to be drawn up and shall deliver the certified copy to the person making the request. (2) Where an accused who is tried under this Part is found not guilty of an offence with which the accused is charged, the judge or provincial court judge, as the case may be, shall immediately acquit the accused in respect of that offence and shall cause an order in Form 37 to be drawn up, and on request shall make out and deliver to the accused a certified copy of the order. (3) Where an accused elects to be tried by a provincial court judge under this Part, the provincial court judge shall transmit the written charge, the memorandum of adjudication and the conviction, if any, into such custody as the Attorney General may direct. (4) A copy of a conviction in Form 35 or of an order in Form 36 or 37, certified by the judge or by the clerk or other proper officer of the court, or by the provincial court judge, as the case may be, or proved to be a true copy, is, on proof of the identity of the person to whom the conviction or order relates, sufficient evidence in any legal proceedings to prove the conviction of that person or the making of the order against that person or his acquittal, as the case may be, for the offence mentioned in the copy of the conviction or order. (5) Where an accused other than an organization is convicted, the judge or provincial court judge, as the case may be, shall issue or cause to be issued a warrant of committal in Form 21, and section 528 applies in respect of a warrant of committal issued under this subsection. (6) Where a warrant of committal is issued by a clerk of a court, a copy of the warrant of committal, certified by the clerk, is admissible in evidence in any proceeding. 571 A judge or provincial court judge acting under this Part may from time to time adjourn a trial until it is finally terminated. 572 The provisions of Part XVI, the provisions of Part XVIII relating to transmission of the record by a provincial court judge where he holds a preliminary inquiry, and the provisions of Parts XX and XXIII, in so far as they are not inconsistent with this Part, apply, with such modifications as the circumstances require, to proceedings under this Part. 573 (1) The powers to be exercised and the duties and functions to be performed under this Act by a court of criminal jurisdiction, a summary conviction court, a judge, a provincial court judge, a justice or a justice of the peace may be exercised or performed by a judge of the Nunavut Court of Justice. (2) A power exercised or a duty or function performed by a judge of the Nunavut Court of Justice under subsection (1) is exercised or performed by that judge as a judge of a superior court. 573.1 (1) An application for review may be made by the Attorney General or the accused, or by any person directly affected by the decision or order, to a judge of the Court of Appeal of Nunavut in respect of a decision or order of a judge of the Nunavut Court of Justice (a) relating to a warrant or summons; (b) relating to the conduct of a preliminary inquiry, including an order under subsection 548(1); (c) relating to a subpoena; (d) relating to the publication or broadcasting of information or access to the court room for all or part of the proceedings; (e) to refuse to quash an information or indictment; or (f) relating to the detention, disposal or forfeiture of any thing seized under a warrant or order. (b) another statutory right of review is available. (i) the judge of the Nunavut Court of Justice failed to observe a principle of natural justice or failed or refused to exercise the judge’s jurisdiction, or (ii) the decision or order was made as a result of an irrelevant consideration or for an improper purpose; (i) the judge failed to comply with a statutory requirement for the making of the decision or order, (ii) the decision or order was made in the absence of any evidence that a statutory requirement for the making of the decision or order was met, (iii) the decision or order was made as a result of reckless disregard for the truth, fraud, intentional misrepresentation of material facts or intentional omission to state material facts, (iv) the warrant is so vague or lacking in particularity that it authorizes an unreasonable search, or (v) the warrant lacks a material term or condition that is required by law; (i) failed to follow a mandatory provision of this Act relating to the conduct of a preliminary inquiry, (ii) ordered the accused to stand trial when there was no evidence adduced on which a properly instructed jury acting reasonably could convict, or (iii) discharged the accused when there was some evidence adduced on which a properly instructed jury acting reasonably could convict; (d) in the case of a decision or order mentioned in paragraph (1)(c) or (d), that the judge of the Nunavut Court of Justice erred in law; (i) the information or indictment failed to give the accused notice of the charge, (ii) the judge of the Nunavut Court of Justice did not have jurisdiction to try the offence, or (iii) the provision creating the offence alleged to have been committed by the accused is unconstitutional; or (i) the judge failed to comply with a statutory requirement for the making of the decision or order, (ii) the decision or order was made in the absence of any evidence that a statutory requirement for the making of the decision or order was met, or (iii) the decision or order was made as a result of reckless disregard for the truth, fraud, intentional misrepresentation of material facts or intentional omission to state material facts. (4) On the hearing of the application for review, the judge of the Court of Appeal of Nunavut may do one or more of the following: (a) order a judge of the Nunavut Court of Justice to do any act or thing that the judge or any other judge of that court failed or refused to do or has delayed in doing; (b) prohibit or restrain a decision, order or proceeding of a judge of the Nunavut Court of Justice; (c) declare invalid or unlawful, quash or set aside, in whole or in part, a decision, order or proceeding of a judge of the Nunavut Court of Justice; (d) refer back for determination in accordance with any directions that the judge considers to be appropriate, a decision, order or proceeding of a judge of the Nunavut Court of Justice; (f) refuse to grant any relief if the judge is of the opinion that no substantial wrong or miscarriage of justice has occurred or that the subject-matter of the application should be determined at trial or on appeal; and (5) If an application for review is made, a judge of the Court of Appeal of Nunavut may make any interim order that the judge considers appropriate pending the final disposition of the application for review. (6) A person who proposes to make an application for review shall do so in the manner and within the period that may be directed by rules of court, except that a judge of the Court of Appeal of Nunavut may at any time extend any period specified in the rules. (7) An appeal lies to the Court of Appeal of Nunavut against a decision or order made under subsection (4).
