This roundtable will consider the saga of ACJ (Manitoba) Lori Douglas, who faced an Inquiry by the Canadian Judicial Council after (inter alia) her husband posted photographs of her on the internet. Did this bring into question her credibility as a judge? Or were the proceedings just “victim blaming couched as legitimate judicial inquiry”? What lessons can we draw from the way the Inquiry unfolded?

The CJC inquiry vividly demonstrates the risks sexually violated women face. Will those who sit in judgment of her change the conversation?
