Retired Justice Claire L’Heureux-Dubé has taken a public position supporting the proposed Quebec Charter and gone to the extent of testifying about it in the Quebec National Assembly.

The resulting debate’s interesting. It’s brought out complaints of inappropriateness and inconsistency directed against the judge. And highlighted ideas of “proportionality” of rights in competition with Dagenais’ idea of no hierarchy of rights.
