    • When the witness is yours, you may not ask leading questions, since witnesses are pre-examined by their side
    • Cross-examinations may use leading questions
    • Credibility is important for all witnesses
    • Evidence must be presented through witnesses (expert or non-expert)
    • If the defence raises a new matter, the crown may give evidence in reply (rebuttal) and then the defence may present surrebuttal (evidence to counter the crown’s rebuttal evidence)
