Before we jump into our interview with professor Anthony Doob we take a moment to remember United States Supreme Court Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg and talk about what will be a contentious confirmation process for the next Trump Supreme Court appointment.

Also, it seems like Mike won some awards – being named the Best Lawyer and being recognized by Canadian Lawyer magazine as one of the top 25 most influential lawyers in Canada!

Then on the the interview put interview with professor Doob. Anthony Doob is an important voice in the criminal justice debate. Professor emeritus and a long-serving director of the Centre of Criminology at the University of Toronto, he is highly regarded for his research into our justice system.

Last year, Doob was appointed as chair of the panel of independent researchers appointed to review reforms to solitary confinement in Canada’s prisons. There was no review because corrections refused to provide the panel with any data.

Then Doob when public….

P.S. Listen to the end for some bonus talk on minimum sentence and pardon reform!
