Supreme Court Speculation and Senate Report on Court Delays

July 4, 2017

So episode 58 – a new record.  But you know that right? Because you subscribe to the show on iTunes and have already rated and reviewed the podcast- right? You should.

Last month, after 28 years on the Supreme Court, Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin announced her retirement. She was first appointed to the court by Brian Mulroney in 1989 – when we were still in grade school.

McLachlin also holds the record as the longest serving chief justice (she was elevated to chief justice by Paul Martin in 2000).

McLachin won’t be easily replaced – her accomplishments were unparalleled.

So who will Trudeau appoint as her replacement and who will be named as the new chief justice? This week we discuss, speculate, and dissect the possibilities for Canada’s top court.

And more court delays. This time its the Senate who weighed in on the issue with the release of a massive report on the issue. We evaluate the Senate’s top recommendations – thumbs up or thumbs down.

We also have some new art – it is still new because it is way easier to just copy and past this section each week – from an awesome young designer Parker Mazerolle – serious he is crazy good – go check out his work.
