    Ontario judge hits airwaves to sate appetite for legal info

    'I'm changing the judicial culture,' he says

    By Ian Mulgrew, Vancouver Sun September 14, 2011

    Trail-blazing Ontario judge Harvey Brownstone is moving to television and dragging other jurists with him, as he single-handedly tries to transform judicial culture.

    The first Canadian judge to declare he was gay, the first to produce a best-selling book on marriage wars and the first to push the envelope with an Internet talk show, Brownstone says he is ramping up his charisma and flamboyance.

    The country's hidebound judiciary is holding its breath - how far will he go this time? Manitoba Chief Justice Richard Scott, chair of the Canadian Judicial Council's conduct committee, has already predicted "somebody is sure as heck going to file a complaint . about something the judge has said on the air."

    Queen's University Faculty of Law just wrote this very good article about our show and Justice Brownstone:

    Judges never speak out on the laws they interpret – but Justice Harvey Brownstone, Law '80, did that with his book Tug of War, which spent 13 weeks on the national best-seller list and is in its fifth printing. In April 2010 he became the world’s first and only sitting judge to host an Internet TV talk show. On “Family Matters,” he educates the public on a wide variety of issues relating to family law, the justice system, relationships, parenting and the well-being of children."
