Testifying on Bill C-9
The Senate Committee of Legal and Constitutional Affairs invited the CMLA to testify about Bill C-9 ("An Act to Amend the Judges Act”). We provided specific amendments to improve accountability and public confidence in the judicial system. This specific clip was part of a response to a senator’s question about a former court policy that banned Muslims from appearing before a specific federal judge. Our submissions were very well-received.
Thanks to Husein Panju and Sania Chaudhry for representing the CMLA on this important issue and to all our members for their valuable input.
