Culture At A Crossroads Season 4, Episode 8

Former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, Beverley McLachlin, joins the show for an enlightening conversation on Canadian law and her legacy at the highest court in the land. 

We dig into her upbringing in rural Alberta, including her exposure to Indigenous students who went to the same school. Plus, she shares at length about growing up in church, and how the Bible's emphasis on equality and dignity were driving factors in her pursuing law.

And she explains her current role judging in Hong Kong, and offers her take on how she thinks Canadians ought to respond in COVID.
