Black Judges Matter - 6CR #104

Black Judges Matter - 6CR #104

January 15, 2021

Black Justice Donald McLeod's integrity is in question from Toronto's chapter of BLM, activist Desmond Cole & the Judicial system. In Dec 2020, Donald McLeod had a disciplinary hearing to evaluate a claim that he committed perjury during a statement of facts from his 2018 disciplinary hearing. Darnell & Joel consider the following questions as they evaluate this story:

  • Is the Federation of Black Canadians a lobbying group?
  • Is there an ulterior motive from the black opposition to Donald McLeod?
  • Is it possible for Justice McLeod to be both a judge and an advocate for the black community?
