Within days of his father's death, Dellen Millard changed the locks at the hangar and fired everyone working at Millardair, court heard. Barnes said he met Wayne Millard the day before his death to discuss what benefit packages to sign the new employees up for. The company had recently received a crucial licence from Transport Canada to operate the business.
But money was tight, Barnes added, and Wayne Millard was dipping into his personal fortune to help finance the new business along with a multimillion-dollar business loan he took out.
The elder Millard told Barnes he had taken out a mortgage on the hangar and on the family home. Barnes said Millardair had a customer lined up in Halifax, and there were other opportunities as well. The company, he said, was "going to be viable," but at that point did not have any contracts signed. Barnes said he wasn't sure of the younger Millard's role in the business other than that Dellen Millard's property company was doing the interior work on the hangar.

He later found out Dellen Millard owned half of Millardair. But Wayne and Dellen Millard "didn't see eye to eye. Dellen Millard had a collection of vehicles and trailers on the hangar floor and the washrooms were used, but never cleaned, Barnes said. The trial has heard that Dellen Millard bought the handgun found next to his father's body from a weapons dealer.
Dellen Millard's DNA was found on the handle of the gun.
Millard told police he last saw his father alive around noon the day before and said he stayed the night at his friend Mark Smich's house. Phone records indicate one of Millard's phones moved from Smich's house around 1 a. A falcon that nests in the CTV communications tower has been found dead after being released back into the wild last week.

A host of logistical issues are raised when someone without legal training represents themselves in court. Should a judge offer Mr. Millard or any other self-represented person any assistance?

Should self-represented people be held to the same rules as the lawyers in the courtroom, even though they may not know what those rules are? How should a judge and jury respond to the arguments of someone who lacks the perspective of a trained advocate? Millard is a stark example of the current and expanding crisis in Canada's courts.
If you walk the halls in any family or civil courthouse, or look in at the lineups in the court registries, they are full of self-represented litigants. More than 50 per cent of those appearing in family court and up to 80 per cent in some downtown Toronto courts are coming without a lawyer.

In civil and appeal courts, the numbers are creeping up above 30 per cent. Yes, you read that right. More than half of those in family court now have no lawyer, and around one-third of those in civil and appeal courts. There are no available statistics for criminal court, and Mr. Millard still presents an exception in a murder trial.

But it is widely agreed that there is a smaller but parallel increase in the number of criminal defendants representing themselves, especially on minor charges where no legal aid is available. This influx of self-represented litigants is one of the most significant changes and challenges to the justice system in years. A system that has been comfortably managed between agents — lawyers, experts and judges — now interacts every day with a flood of ordinary Canadians.
People who come to court after staying up all night reading up on how to present their case, lugging carrier bags of documents with them, probably standing up and sitting down at the wrong moments, speaking out of turn and getting increasingly frazzled. A few are remarkably composed and organized. Most are scared to death and trying their hardest to "get it right".

I know this because I spent a year talking to self-represented litigants in family and civil court in Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia. The stories I heard were remarkably consistent among courts and provinces. They were stories of humiliation, frustration and powerlessness. Why are people self-representing?
First and, most importantly, almost never because they want to. Most self-represented litigants do not suddenly wake up one morning and decide they fancy being a lawyer. The most significant reason for self-representation — and studies in the United States, England and Wales, Australia and New Zealand have reached the same conclusion — is because hiring a lawyer is now beyond the means of the majority of the public. Others more than half my study respondents will begin with a lawyer but run out of funds as costs mount up.
