Where a superior court judge becomes a youth justice court judge by operation of the deeming provisions in s. 13(2) or s. 13(3) of the Youth Criminal Justice Act (â€œYCJAâ€), the superior court is so deemed for the purpose of the proceeding. As it is used in ss. 13(2) and 13(3), â€œthe proceedingâ€ is not confined to the trial, but rather includes any step taken by a youth justice court judge after the young person elects to be tried at the superior court, including any pre-trial application for judicial interim release, until trial.
