2018 Rule of Law Lecture

How can a free and democratic society balance due process and the rights of the accused with public opinion and the rights of a victim?

Join former Supreme Court of Canada Justice and litigator Ian Binnie, CC, QC, and National Post columnist Jonathan Kay for a lively dialogue on how the rule of law and social justice interact and intersect.
