Three lawyers were among 90 appointments to the Order of Canada yesterday including a former Supreme Court of Canada justice.
University of Saskatchewan emeritus law professor and former dean Daniel Ish, was named Officer of the Order of Canada for his “commitment to social justice, notably as the former chief adjudicator of the Indian Residential Schools Adjudication Secretariat.”
As well, retired chief justice of Québec, J.J. Michel Robert of Montréal, was named an Officer of the Order of Canada for his “achievements in the field of law as a lawyer and jurist, and for his commitment to advancing his profession.” He is now a consulting partner with law firm BCF in Montreal.
The extent to which a federal government promise or social covenant to veterans to care for them and their families in the event of death or injury binds successive governments will be tested in a class action suit hoping to move forward for court certification in mid-2014.
The case is being taken forward by a Vancouver team of Miller Thomson LLP led by partner Donald Sorochan, who is representing six veterans with injuries sustained while serving Canada but feel they have not been fairly cared for.
Sorochan said the court challenge is unique. “It has never been argued that social covenant has constitutional importance.”
