How well do you know the
Chief Justice of Nova Scotia

A proud native of Whitney Pier, Chief Justice Michael MacDonald sat down recently with host Steve Sutherland of CBC Information Morning - Cape Breton.

The feature interview aired on Sept. 25, 2017, and is the first in Season 4 of The Breakfast Biographies.


In this wide-ranging discussion, the Chief Justice talks about everything from the challenges of making decisions involving children, to vexatious litigants, to his ongoing commitment to improve access to justice for all.


"We have real live people coming before us with real live issues. We are the ones tasked to balance them … 
and we do the best we can."

- The Honourable J. Michael MacDonald, Chief Justice of Nova Scotia
