Quebec government shelves administrative justice system reform

A comprehensive report that called on the Quebec government to revamp the province’s administrative justice system has been quietly shelved, all but admitted the Quebec Minister of Justice Stéphanie Vallée before a parliamentary commission at the National Assembly.

The report noted that an absence of clear rules in the nomination process of Quebec administrative tribunal adjudicators allows for partisan influence, compromises their independence, potentially raises questions over their impartiality, and casts doubt over the integrity of a system that directly or indirectly affects all Quebecers.
