A message from the Governor General

For the past 120 years, the St. James Literary Society Inc. has been merging the social and the cerebral. Through its varied and impressive programming, the organization brings people from the community together. By creating opportunities for learning and dialogue, the Society also
fosters a greater understanding of the world around us.

When we are open and work together, we find the answers to our questions and the solutions to the issues facing our planet. On this milestone anniversary, I commend the members of the St. James Literary Society Inc. and all those whose efforts make it a dynamic and unifying organization.

Never stop being curious, asking questions and exploring new horizons. Keep aiming high!

Julie Payette
The Governor General

 

May 14: You Be the Judge

Me Goodwin will present the details from one of her cases along with the pertinent jurisprudence. Then the audience will be divided into groups (jury) whose task it will be to determine whether or not the protagonist is guilty. Once deliberations are completed, the foremen of each group will deliver their verdicts along with the reasons underlying their decisions.

Finally, Me Goodwin will announce the actual verdict in the case and explain the law as it applies to the matter at hand.
