Former Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin's musical tribute to Vancouver
Originally published on June 13, 2018
In a segment we call the q Block Party, we invite guests to pay musical tribute to the neighbourhoods they hold dear to their hearts.
In this edition, we've invited someone who's reached the pinnacle of success in her field. Beverley McLachlin is the longest-serving Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada and she's just written her first novel, a legal thriller called Full Disclosure, which is out now. It's set in Vancouver, a city where McLachlin's own story starts as well. She takes us back to the very beginning of her long career with a playlist of songs.
Below are McLachlin's song picks:
Leonard Cohen, Bird on the Wire
Claude Debussy, La Mer
Sister Sledge, We Are Family
— Produced by Shannon Higgins and Mitch Stuart
