Compassionate Justice Speaker

February 23, 2020 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Beverley McLachlin

Former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada

Accessing Justice

Access to justice is a fundamental need of people in the 21st Century. Yet providing people access to the justice system in our complex post-modern world is challenging. We need to rethink how we provide justice to citizens if we want to meet this challenge. Beverley was 17th Chief Justice of Canada from 2000 to 2017, the first woman to hold that position and the longest serving Chief Justice in Canadian history.

The Compassionate Justice Speaker Series is sponsored by Eglinton St. George’s United Church. Join us for a light lunch prior to the presentation at 12:30 pm. Free admission, donations gratefully accepted. You do not need to register to attend. ESG is an accessible facility.
