A remarkable new podcast provides two perspectives – from this century and the last - on what it’s like to be a judge in British Columbia. The combined wisdom of two judges, their shared experiences, and the respect of one for the other make this podcast episode not just interesting but moving.
This week eNews has featured some of the women whose appointments to the Provincial Court of British Columbia were milestones in the province’s history.
To mark International Women’s Day and the first International Day of Women Judges, eNews is profiling several BC Provincial Court women judges whose appointments constituted milestones in our province’s history. Today we feature Judge Harbans Dhillon, BC’s first South Asian woman judge.
