Ep 82 An INTREPID Podsight -- Mr Justice Richard Mosley of the Federal Court

Stephanie and Craig are honoured to welcome to the show Mr Justice Richard Mosley of the Federal Court. We spend a lot of time on INTREPID talking about the national security jurisprudence of the Federal Court. This was our opportunity to sit down with one of the most experienced and respected Federal Court “designated judges” (who hear security cases) to talk about what it is like to be a judge in the national security space. We start with a brief overview of Justice Mosley’s distinguished career, and then launch into a discussion of CSIS warrants and Canada Evidence Act proceedings — all from the judge’s eye view. Justice Mosley explains the role the Court plays in providing independent oversight in these areas, as well as giving us an inside peek into a “day in the life” of a busy Federal Court judge, and some of the challenges of national security judging. This is not one to be missed. Thanks to Justice Mosley for welcoming us to his chambers, and for sitting down with us (and our listeners).
