On March 5, ICJ Canada Board member Gib van Ert hosted an event at his law firm, Hunter Litigation Chambers, in Vancouver, British Columbia. This successful event served as an occasion to introduce the Canadian section of ICJ and its new project on federal judicial appointments to members of the local bar. Guests included Mr. Justice Voith of the Supreme Court of British Columbia; Bruno De Vita, managing partner of a well-known local firm, Alexander Holburn; John Hunter QC, head of Hunter Litigation Chambers; and Clea Amundsen, who recently spent several months in Kenya on an ICJ project. Event attendees learned about ICJ Canada’s focus on promoting an effective judicial appointments process that reflects international norms, and ensures a respected and independent judiciary that also reflects the diversity of Canada’s population.
