Justice’s connections troubling

We are concerned about the optics of Justice Dennis O’Connor connection to law firm Borden Ladner Gervais and this law firm’s connection to the Toronto Police Service. We believe that the internal review must be conducted by someone with impeccable impartiality.

It is problematic that Justice O’Connor’s law firm “BLG has acted for the insurers of the Toronto Police Service in civil suits, some of which include allegations of the wrongful use of lethal force. Currently, lawyers at BLG are acting on a number of such matters.”
