The Chief Justice and the Prime Minister

In a Globe and Mail article this morning, Justice Reporter Sean Fine wrote, “The Prime Minister’s Office publicly asserted that the Chief Justice attempted to contact Mr. Harper about a court case, and said that he refused to take her phone call when Justice Minister Peter MacKay told him it would be ‘inappropriate’.” See http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/harper-alleges-supreme-court-chief-justice-broke-key-rule-with-phone-call/article18382971/

University of Ottawa Law Professor Errol Mendes responded with a Globe column, which can be found at http://www.theglobeandmail.com/globe-debate/attempt-to-smear-chief-justice-an-affront-to-our-constitutional-system/article18394828/
