Denis, does this mean that you cannot get your job back in the university?
No, no, no. The civil lawsuit and the labour arbitration are two different processes. The SCC application arose from the civil lawsuit, in which I was trying to obtain a judicial determination of reasonable apprehension of bias of a judge. I brought a motion for reasonable apprehension of bias and it was never heard on its merits. I wanted the SCC to find that any such motion about bias must be heard because lack of even just apparent bias is centrally important to the legal system in a free and democratic society.
