Beverley McLachlin in Conversation with Laura Lynch

Sunday, Oct 27
Granville Island Stage

1585 Johnston Street

For nearly two decades, Beverley McLachlin served as the Chief Justice of Canada, the longest serving Chief Justice in Canadian history and the first woman to hold the position. In her new memoir, Truth Be Told: My Journey Through Life and the Law, McLachlin invites Canadians into her childhood in the rural prairies, the defining moments that shaped her sense of justice and behind the bench during some of the most contentious Supreme Court cases—including Charter challenges, same-sex marriage and euthanasia—sharing an intimate portrait of a life lived in pursuit of justice and equality. In this special event, this remarkable feminist icon and modern Canadian great opens up on her triumphs and her regrets—and the hope she has for Canada’s future.

Generously sponsored by Southern Butler Price LLP and Tourism Vancouver.
