At the 2013 Robson Hall speakers series, former Supreme Court Justice Michel Bastarache spoke about the role the judiciary in the legal development of language rights in Canada. In his presentation, Justice Bastarache explained the history of language rights in the Canadian legal system, its place in the context of Canadian multiculturalism and ethnic nationalism, and its role in Canadian federalism and the “asymmetrical organization” of the Constitutional divisions of power.
