Professor Jeffery Hewitt was quoted in an article in The Star today entitled, "Advocates for minority Supreme Court judge disappointed by Trudeau’s pick." Professor Hewitt told The Star that he doesn’t accept arguments that there may be a lack of qualified candidates.“Tell us who applied. Give us the list. Talk to us about . . . whether there were any indigenous people in there?” he said.
