In this episode of Grey Matter Podcast,  Constitutional Lawyer Leighton Grey and Jeffrey Rath have a conversation about Alberta’s chief medical officer of health, Dr. Deena Hinshaw’s COVID-19 court proceedings in court on Tuesday. Jeff Rath has been advocating and winning cases for First Nations at every level of Court in Canada for over 20 years. A large part of Rath’s practice concerns the protection and advancement of Treaty and Aboriginal rights and Treaty interpretation in the court of law. Jeff acted as Lead Counsel in the Mikisew Cree Nation case, among other successes.

The Court issued a unanimous 9-0 ruling in favor of Mikisew in what has become a Landmark decision of that Court. During the conversation, Grey & Rath touched on Rath’s history and how he became involved in politics and law, the current situation in the Deana Hinshaw case from the front lines, and the alternatives to how the government has handled the COVID-19 situation.
