No Robust Public Consultations on Trudeau Government’s Bill C-9

At the Senate Legal Committee, I recently questioned Trudeau’s Justice Minister David Lametti about Bill C-9, (the Judges Act amendment regarding judicial conduct). (I am the Official Opposition’s Senate critic of this bill.)

In this segment, I challenged Minister Lametti on the lack of robust public consultation for this bill. As the major component of their public consultation, the Department of Justice did an on-line survey, but they only received a shockingly low 72 responses from Canadians! Not good enough, especially since they have worked on this bill since 2016.
