The complainant requested that a judge’s behavior be reviewed for dishonesty after becoming publicly known that he had unpaid rent from when he was previously living in Quebec. The complainant referenced and based their complaint on a news article from the Globe and Mail. The judge had disclosed that he had pursued the appropriate measures in resolving the situation and making the required payments in full.

The Council determined that the judge provided sufficient explanation in the matter, and also raised the fact that he has a legal right to having a private personal life. Another claim from the landlord was dismissed as the original matter was settled satisfactorily. The matter was closed.
