Justice Major Retires
Justice John Major is going.
It is fair to say he was on the right of the court, most dramatically as one of the authors of Chaoulli, and one third of the maximalist group. The Court will therefore have at least three new members when it decides what Chaoulli means.
He is responsible for eliminating "Your Lordship" and "Your Ladyship." There is something to be said for this innovation. Unfortunately, "Justice" does not work in the vocative.
