With Emilie on the campaign trial – and Oh My Goodness she has been killing it – special guest, former Supreme Court judge, and current mother-in-law Louise Arbour joins Michael and steps up to the mic to break down the latest Supreme Court case.

In R. v. Poulin the Supreme Court interprets 11(i) of the Charter – and it is super interesting – we promise!

The Globe and Mail reported that the Supreme Court ruled Canadian judges have been too soft on punishment for 30 years. But did the Court really say that? And does the split decision stand up to a critical analysis.

Louise pulls no punches and even pulls back the curtains about how she made decisions when she was on Canada’s highest court.
