Quebec judges accused of buying drugs
If judges are buying drugs what does that say about the law; what does it say about judges???
The Canadian Judicial Council announced Tuesday it is reviewing the conduct of Justice Michel Girouard of the Quebec Superior Court for the alleged purchase of “an illicit substance from a police informant.”
Another judge, Marc Grimard of Quebec Court, is facing a similar allegation.
On Monday, Chief Justice Elizabeth Corte of the Quebec Court said the allegation against Judge Grimard is being taken “very seriously” and he is not being assigned new cases.
Both judges sit in Rouyn-Noranda, about 510 kilometres northwest of Montreal.
