I’m the Bill C-9 Senate Opposition critic (Judges Act disciplinary process revamp).
Pleased that the Senate Legal Committee passed my substantial amendment (by a vote of 8-4-1) to include “laypersons” (i.e. not judges/lawyers) on each disciplinary panel.
(Thank you to Senators Boisvenu, Plett, Tannas, D. Patterson, Jaffer, Clement and Simons for voting yes to my amendment at committee.)
Here is the VIDEO of my arguments for this #SoberSecondThought amendment at the Senate Legal Committee.
