Alberta lawyers share insights from the front lines of the Hinshaw case

In this episode Constitutional Lawyer Leighton Grey and Jeffrey Rath have a conversation about Alberta’s chief medical officer of health Dr. Deena Hinshaw’s COVID-19 court proceedings that took place in court on Tuesday.

Jeff Rath has been involved in advocating and winning cases for First Nations at every level of Court in Canada for over 20 years. A large part of Rath’s practice concerns the protection and advancement of Treaty and Aboriginal rights and Treaty interpretation in the court of law. Among other successes Jeff acted as Lead Counsel in Mikisew Cree Nation Case. The Court issued a unanimous 9-0 ruling in favor of Mikisew in what has become a Landmark decision of that Court.

During the conversation Grey & Rath touch on Rath’s history and how he became involved in politics and law, the current situation in the Deana Hinshaw case from the front lines, and the alternatives to how the government has handled the COVID-19 situation.
