The Justice Minister’s new mandate
So, episode 116 – a new record. But you know that right? Because you subscribe to the show and have already rated and reviewed the podcast – right? You should.
We are trying a new format over here at the Taman/Spratt studios – a shorter podcast in your feed every two weeks – like clockwork! So on to the show…
The Justice Minister has new a new mandate and with it a new supplementary mandate letter. This episode we look at David Lametti’s new marching orders and wonder if this time will he actually follow through on them.
But before we do that…. Canadian Lawyer published a bigoted transphobic opinion piece on Friday. There was an immediate backlash. Canadian Lawyer has since removed the piece because it “did not reflect the views of Canadian Lawyer Magazine.” But we need discuss how this happened. Sunlight is the best disinfectant.
This piece in @CanLawMag is repulsive and thinly veiled bigotry. It is also intellectually dishonest and poorly written. This has nothing to do with freedom of speech. It is trash. https://t.co/R6dpZqzdyq
