Who is Andrée Ruffo?
In October, 2004 the Quebec Judicial Council noting several ethical shortcomings, recommended her dismissal as a judge. She was accused primarily of having publicly discussed matters she was legally involved with, of having hidden links of friendship with an expert witness who testified before her, and of having lent her name and used the prestige of her position in a 2002 Via Rail television advertisement.
In December, 2005, five judges of the Quebec Court of Appeal upheld the ruling of the Quebec Judicial Council and recommended Judge Ruffo’s dismissal. Andrée Ruffo asked permission to appeal this decision to the Supreme Court of Canada.
