The Sacred Fire – The Legacy of Antonio Lamer

Editors: Adam Dodek, B.A., J.D., LL.M. & Daniel Jutras, LL.B., LL.M.

The Right Honourable Antonio Lamer holds the distinction of serving as a Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada during two very significant moments of constitutional history – enactment of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms (1982) and the Quebec Seccession Reference (1998). One of the longest-serving judges of his era, Chief Justice Lamer played an instrumental role in developing Canada’s new culture of rights under the Charter.

In this first-ever collection of essays about Chief Justice Lamer, academics, former clerks, and members of the judiciary examine his legacy of Charter interpretation and the protection of Canadians’ rights.
