Donald Best, a former Toronto Police Service detective sergeant turned “leading Canadian anti-corruption whistleblower and activist” has been awarded the Ontario Civil Liberties Association’s 2018 Civil Liberties Award.
“In his ongoing legal cases and public advocacy, Mr. Best has exposed corruption in the Canadian legal profession including secret orders and investigations by judges, the submission of false evidence in court by lawyers, and the failure of disciplinary bodies such as the Law Society of Ontario and the Canadian Judicial Council to investigate complaints against judges and lawyers,” the civil liberties group said in a news release Tuesday.
“Mr. Best’s tireless efforts to create integrity and accountability in the Canadian legal system make him an exemplary leader in the fight for equality before and under the law of all Canadians, including self-represented litigants.”
