The Vancouver Writers Fest presents
82. Beverley MaLachlin in Conversation with Laura Lynch
Interviewer: Laura Lynch
The former Chief Justice of Canada and first woman to hold the position, Beverly McLachlin discusses her new memoir, Truth Be Told: My Journey Through Life and the Law.
For nearly two decades, Beverley McLachlin served as the Chief Justice of Canada, the longest serving Chief Justice in Canadian history and the first woman to hold the position. In her new memoir, Truth Be Told: My Journey Through Life and the Law, McLachlin invites Canadians into her childhood in the rural prairies, the defining moments that shaped her sense of justice and behind the bench during some of the most contentious Supreme Court cases—including Charter challenges, same-sex marriage and euthanasia—sharing an intimate portrait of a life lived in pursuit of justice and equality. In this special event, this remarkable feminist icon and modern Canadian great opens up on her triumphs and her regrets—and the hope she has for Canada’s future.
