Statement from Attorney General Madeleine Meilleur on the Passing of Justice Marc Rosenberg
Today Attorney General Madeleine Meilleur made the following statement on the passing of Justice Marc Rosenberg:
"I was greatly saddened today to learn of the death of the Honourable Marc Rosenberg, a respected and influential figure in the Canadian legal community.
Called to the Bar in 1976, Justice Rosenberg left a successful criminal law practice in the mid-1990s to devote his tremendous talents and expertise to the public service. After acting in a number of consulting capacities for the Ontario and Nova Scotia governments, as well as for the Law Reform Commission of Canada, he was named Assistant Deputy Attorney General of Ontario in 1995. Shortly thereafter, Justice Rosenberg was appointed to the Court of Appeal for Ontario, where he served until earlier this year.
Generations of students of the Osgoode Hall Law School will also remember Justice Rosenberg as a passionate teacher and powerful legal mind as well as author of many articles and papers mostly related to criminal law, evidence and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
Today my thoughts and prayers are with Justice Rosenberg's family, many colleagues and friends. I join with them in mourning his loss.
He will be missed."
