Supreme Court nominee Nicholas Cassis Claymont joins the what happened in the hearing today. There was a lot of Almost Lover for this guy lot of respect, a lot of admiration since resting. He was the dean of Miguel’s law school worth, noting also a prophet that law school. Our current Justice Minister graduate of that law school the head of the Justice committee. There was a certain collegiality in the room that really came through, but nevertheless, when they started going over his legal views, you could really see why there would be such affection for him. As the legal scholar very measured person, answer. Thorny, your questions did not stray into controversy. Paused chose his words carefully and Play a clip from his answer. When Lisa rate was asking him about a couple things that are often hot-button issues, when you evaluate judge, has she asked him about section 33 of the charter?

As a thinker and a Juris comes from this morning, I was Kim Campbell as the head of the independent Advisory board for this pic job. Only one was a woman by the Reno indigenous candidates, none identified as a member of a minority group and whether that was a problem for the system as a whole. He is yes, another white guy from Montreal, but in his answers today he did Bentley show a real appreciation for minority rights for some of these issues that we know will be very important to this court. Things like indigenous rights going forward, so yeah he’s a white guy from Montreal, but he’s pretty woke one if you listen to the today and if anyone is questioning them about the lack of diversity among the applicant pool for sure or click the link.
