Craig M. Scott, Osgoode Hall Law School of York University

It is an important outcome of the complaints lodged with the Canadian Judicial Council that the CJC process has led to introspection and remorse on the part of Justice Spiro as well as a clear and direct finding from his CJC colleagues that his conduct was not acceptable.
