Wagner sworn in

|Written By Gail J. Cohen

Canada's newest Supreme Court of Canada judge Richard Wagner was publicly sworn in Monday. He officially became a justice of the court  at a private ceremony shortly after he was in October.

Wagner is the son of Claude Wagner, a Quebec lawyer, prosecutor, judge, cabinet minister, federal Conservative leadership candidate, senator, who gave him much inspiration. He paid tribute to his father at yesterday's cermony.

“His generosity and noble spirit always inspired me to follow in his steps. He will always be my hero,” Wagner said at the formal gathering at the Supreme Court.

Wagner, 55, was elevated to the top court from Quebec Court of Appeal. He replaces Justice Marie Deschamps who retired in August.
