In this final instalment of the Right Honorable Richard Wagner’s interview with Marie-Eve Sylvestre, Dean of the Faculty of Law, Civil Law Section of the University of Ottawa, the Chief Justice draws a more intimate portrait of his motivations and passions as the top judge of the Supreme Court of Canada. He notes that it is a real privilege to be able to play a role in building a more just society for future generations.
Significant measures were put in place to limit the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Canadians. Most of these required the intervention of legislative drafters who urgently prepared the texts of the laws and regulations that enabled governments to take action. This JuriDoc exposes the behind-the-scenes work of these lawyers who serve our governments and whose contributions are fundamental to both democracy and the rule of law in Canada.
