One of the greatest honors I have ever had was representing Nora Bernard, and the survivors of the Shubenacadie Indian Residential School, in the negotiations that lead to the creation of the Indian Residential School National Class Action Settlement.
Former Supreme Court Justice Frank Iacobucci was the lead negotiator for Canada.
Slaw.ca has reported on a keynote speech given by Justice Iacobucci at the Federation of Asian Canadian Lawyers Fall Conference.
The article goes into great depth about what motivated Iacobucci during the negotiations. I have included a link to the article so that you can read it in its entirety.
