“SCC upholds order for new trial after language rights infringed” by Elizabeth Raymer, Canadian Lawyer Magazine

Canadian Lawyer Magazine quotes Montréal lawyer, Yves Turgeon, in an article on language rights infringement.

Yves Turgeon, a partner at Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP in Montreal, who acted for the respondent Industrial, told Legal Feeds that the hearing before the Tax Court marked the first time in his 30 years of practice that he had seen a witness effectively required to testify in an official language that was not his or her language of choice and that he had been uncomfortable presenting his argument in English before the judge. Today’s decision, he says, clarifies that official language rights must be upheld even in informal procedures such as those before the Tax Court of Canada in this case.
