MR. JUSTICE RAND A TRIUMPH OF PRINCIPLE
AbstractThis article assesses Justice Ivan Rand’s contribution to the Supreme Court of Canada and its effect on the Court and Canadian jurisprudence. It hails him as the most eminent judge, second possibly only to Duff, and argues that his achievement was as much a product of the man Rand was, as of what he said and how he said it. It focuses on Rand’s public concern for the primacy of human intellect and importance of individual liberty. In documenting his background and success, the author seeks and exposes the unifying thread of Rand’s life work, which espouses the privilege accorded to, and high degree of individual responsibility expected from, members of a free society in ordering their affairs in a reasoned way.
