PERSONAL ENDORSEMENT OF JANET MINOR FOR BENCHER
I am pleased to endorse Treasurer Janet Minor for Bencher.
A point of emphasis for Treasurer Minor has been to enhance opportunities for communication and dialogue with members of the profession. In the particular case of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association, we are pleased to note that we have been able to engage in meaningful discussion with the Law Society of Upper Canada on a variety of important topics including ABS, Standards of Excellence and Code of Conduct, compliance with the existing Rules of Professional Conduct and Court Reform. In my view, thanks in no small part to the leadership of Treasurer Minor, our members have found a voice in debates about critical issues affecting their future.
We are grateful to Treasurer Minor for that voice and we look forward to a continued close working relationship with the Law Society of Upper Canada.
Steve Rastin, President
Ontario Trial Lawyers Association
