"It was a tremendous honour and a genuine pleasure to participate in this event at the Supreme Court of Canada | Cour suprême du Canada. The appointment of the Honourable Justice Mary T. Moreau is historic not only in that it recognizes her long contribution to the law in Canada, including her history as a francophone Albertan and advocate for minority French language rights in Western Canada, but it also tipped the gender balance to a majority of women justices on the Court for the first time ever."
