Kasirer to be appointed to Supreme Court effective Sept. 16 - 2019-08-07
Nicholas Kasirer has officially been appointed to the country's highest court.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced today that he had appointed the Quebec judge to the Supreme Court of Canada, effective Sept. 16, 2019. Trudeau nominated Kasirer in July to replace Justice Clément Gascon, who announced in the spring that he would leave the bench in September.
Kasirer then appeared at a special two-hour meeting on July 25 where parliamentarians questioned him about his qualifications and legal philosophies.
