Official Languages committee  Mr. Clarke, these decisions already exist. People made them a while ago. All existing rulings are available in at least one of the two official languages. That's translation. Of course, if you say you want to translate all of them, we will be happy to, but we're trying to make r

Official Languages committee  There are challenges in Quebec other than the translation of rulings. Even in the legislative process, it isn't clear. In Quebec, legislation isn't co-drafted, like it is at the federal level and in other provinces. It's already a challenge to ensure that our laws are adopted in

Official Languages committee  I will take the liberty of answering that question. Trust me, the reality is that all the lawyers in Canada are looking for any creative solution they can understand.

Official Languages committee  I can make a clarification. If I'm not mistaken, there was some funding until 2012, which was then terminated.

Paul-Matthieu Grondin

Official Languages committee  Can I answer that question? The budgets we have previously requested for SOQUIJ could help us a lot. Then a committee made up of chief justices, or of judges of a certain court, and others involved, could determine which judgments are of interest and should be translated. The r

Official Languages committee  Not all cases have constitutional questions that go right to the top. So there actually can be repercussions for the rest of Canada. Moreover, a lot of people all over the country interpret the Constitution one way or another. We do a lot of interpretations here in Quebec. Chief

Official Languages committee  Good afternoon. Thank you, Mr. Chair. Mr. Paradis, you were once the President of the Quebec Bar too.

Health committee  Let me quickly answer that precise question. The number of grams is still a political question. You are talking about simplifying things, but, as you said, prevention is extremely important. In the Quebec bar’s view, one thing is clear: young people should not be punished more se

Health committee  I'll just make a clarification on behalf of the Barreau du Québec. We don't do politics, but once a decision is made to move forward, we try to help as much as possible. That's a precision, maybe.
