MIN­IS­TER OF JUS­TICE, GOVERN­MENT OF CANADA PRE­VI­OUSLY # ” • , ” – — ˜

With mar­i­juana le­gal­iza­tion set for Oc­to­ber 17, Canada’s jus­tice min­is­ter spent most of 2018 mak­ing sure all the nec­es­sary sup­port­ing laws were in place, in­clud­ing a new road­side saliva test for cannabis. Be­yond the busy pot file, Wil­sonRay­bould an­nounced big changes to fam­ily law in May, with a fo­cus on pro­tect­ing the in­ter­ests of chil­dren, and—more con­tro­ver­sially—pub­licly weighed in on the Colten Boushie trial (tweet­ing, “As a coun­try, we can and must do bet­ter,”—a nono for a sit­ting min­is­ter, de­spite the im­por­tant is­sues raised about how In­dige­nous peo­ple are treated by Canada’s le­gal sys­tem).
