From the Prime Minister website, “Justice Kasirer has led an exceptional career as a judge and professor, earning the esteem of his peers in Canada and around the world. He served for a decade as a judge of the Court of Appeal of Quebec, where he was appointed in 2009. Prior to that, he led a twenty-year career as a professor of law at McGill University, including as dean of the Faculty of Law. Justice Kasirer is perfectly bilingual.”
On July 25, 2019, Justice Kasirer gave a glorious introductory speech to members of the House of Commons Standing Committee and of the Senate’s Legal and Constitutional Affairs Committee, and answered questions. Here is a link to the video recording.
