Beverley McLachlin- Supreme Justice
On Rewind, an interview with The Right Honourable Beverley McLachlin. Since 2000 she's been the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, but when Peter Gzowski interviewed her in 1998 she was already one of this country's most brilliant and accomplished judges. In her time as Chef Justice, McLachlin has worked hard to expand the court's public outreach. During the course of her term she has given plenty of speeches, attended conferences and carefully expressed her opinions. But this was all new in 1998. Doing a feature interview with a Supreme Court judge was novel. Doing a feature interview with a Supreme Court judge who was not only smart and incisive, but who liked to tell stories and have a laugh, seemed astonishing.
